Saturday Night Live attempted to write a feminist song, then decided it was too hard, and in the end might've ended up writing one anyway. The video sketch for “This Is Not a Feminist Song” featured SNL’s female cast — Aidy Bryant, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, and Sasheer Zamata — along with host Ariana Grande.

Although they really wanted to create an homage to feminism, instead they sang about how difficult it was and how “This is not a feminist song / we tried real hard but it took too long.” Ironically it ended up being a heroic “anthem for all of womankind.”

The humorous music video highlights a diverse range of women staring off into the distance and holding up their arms flaunting their strength while the cast is singing things like ”So instead of writing lyrics, here’s us running in the sand / And here’s a bunch of lens flares and an old woman’s hands.” But after showing footage of feminists Malala, Maya Angelou, and Madeleine Albright, in the end they all realize it actually is a feminist song and they even ask to tweet it #FeministSong.

Watch the hilarious video above for the feminist way to kick off your week! The song is pretty catchy, so don't be surprised if you can't stop singing it.
