Neko Case — “Pretty Girls”

Neko Case once tweeted that  her personal/feminist motto was, “I’m not a woman or man, I’m a  two-fisted-son-of-a-bitch who will punch your lights out and I love you.” Pretty much. She wrote “Pretty Girls” about women waiting to get abortions in the Planned Parenthood clinic, resisting the judgement they’re getting from the outside: “Don’t let the wolves in, pretty girls.”
