Helen Reddy, singer of "I Am Woman" (hear me roar), RIP

Helen Reddy, the Australian-American singer and activist who famously co-wrote and sang the 1971 feminist anthem "I Am Woman," has died at age 78. The song was informed by Reddy's experiences in the Women's Movement in Australia.

"I realised that the song I was looking for didn't exist, and I was going to have to write it myself," she later said.
