It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the ears that promises to leave you humming ...I am strong, I am invincible...
The inspiring story of Helen Reddy, a fearlessly ambitious and passionate singer who wrote and sang the song “I Am Woman”, which went on to become the anthem for the women’s movement in the 1970s.
Reddy arrived in New York in 1966 with her daughter, a suitcase, and $230. Her friendship with legendary rock journalist Lillian Roxon inspired the song that becomes an enduring anthem of the feminist movement. It also sparked an astounding career that resulted in 15 Top 40 hits.
