    Great song. It seems to have hit a nerve in times when women are losing their basic rights.

  • Ray Bernier
    Ray Bernier

    Great song. But we need to go one step further. So many kids were beat up by their fathers and they simply cannot relate to God as a benevolent man. So it's time to abandon the notion of God the Father and adopt an all gendered figurehead instead. Then let's accept that Jesus, as God incarnate, was LGBTQ.

    This song propagates the idea that God has forgotten all females. It also furthers identity politics. When I listen to music I do it to escape the crazies of the world. I absolutely detest it when a musician pushes politics on me. It's always some emotion based way to divide people. There are just as many pressures on men who aren't allowed to do so many things because their families don't approve or their town. Everyone praising the message in this song is praising division and ignorance. Beautiful chords and melody ... they missed an opportunity to spread something positive like the message of love or unity or the precious individuality that God gave each of us ... Male or Female. I am not a cowboy, not a cop, not a veteran and to many I have not reached my potential. But I am happily married to a christian woman, I have beautiful children, and I have great stories to tell of things that made me happy in my life. I have no need of a musician telling me how or what to think. Don't fall for it ... we are better together.

    Pretty song, but, we had female sports in the eighties, and girls "social prep" classes died out in the sixties, so not sure what the video is alluding to...unless it social norms change, which yea they do, not always for the better

    I’m assuming that the god you’re looking for is the same one that has 98% of war-related deaths men, 99% of work related deaths men, 70% of suicides men. Life sucks sometimes for both sons and daughters.

    Did my mother write these lyrics... She would always tell my sister and I that we were going to marry a man to take care of us and sadly I actually thought that's what we were supposed to do but she never prepared us on the ownership rights these men thought they were paying for, we both ended up divorcing them and we became strong independent women who raised some strong independent women

    It is like firls have to be so perfect and it is not fair. Boys are constantly the favorite, and girls have soooooo much power. You know what, I love dance, and I love basketball, that is totally ok. Girls aren't objects, and we can accomplish everything boys can. Go ladies.

    I was definitely born in the right time period, because I can't imagine having to act like a "perfect lady" like our great grandmother's and older were expected to. It's hard enough trying to love yourself today without that kind of additional weight on your shoulders.

    For everyone in the comments "A god for the daughters" Isnt to be taken literal. If you listen to the words, Watch your mouth watch your weight, pose like a trophy on a shelf. Its about the standards most of society has for women, its about what a lot of women grew up with, how women have been treated and expected to act. Not literally about god. It's a beautiful, powerful song with a powerful meaning.

      It can be taken literally and still fit perfect. The whole history of Abrahamic religions has been a war on women. The holy books talk about women as property that can be bought, used, and sold. So where is the God for daughters?

    Beautiful song. We have a God for the daughters, but we forget him or are not taught how much HE loves his daughters. I believe he feels our pain, but living in a fallen world with free agency he doesn't interfer. He helps us in ways we often don't even see. He will lend us strength to endure if only we would turn to him. He wants to hear from his precious daughters always. ❤ #PrayerBuildsFaith #GodLovesHisDaughters #HeKnowsYourName #KeepTheFaith #Endure

    I never comment but this song hit me hard. We were a family of 10 counting my mom and dad. 3 sons, 5 daughters First my father passed away. Then all 3 brothers pass away one by one. Leaving only my mom and her daughters. This song in a way is my prayer. We know he's there but this song is our way of saying, please watch over us, we try our best.

    I like the video acting and the musical voices are amazing. However, when they put God in the middle as the problem by talking about God the Father and God the Son (I'm just looking for a god for the daughters). God is God for all children including this daughter (and me). God did not create the problem portrayed in the video (or culture). Blaming Him crossed a line.

    That SON, whom the FATHER gave unto the world, was the through Mary, the mortal mother of Christ! There is a reason, our creator who made us all "mankind" (that is to say; humans) in thier image, made it so that we are male and female. Only you are strong enough to bear the weight of carrying and caring for children. It's through you the miracle of life that we all exist. Our father, the creator planted the seeds of live in the garden of Eden, but it's through you that humanity grows...A TRUE Father loves his daughters as much as he loves his sons. And he thanks God he doesn't have to grow them in his body. 😉😊

    There is a God for the Daughters she is GODDESS even Jesus spoke of the great mother in the book of the Essene's...The Patriarchy took that from us NOW We take it back. Hathor, Tefnut, Nuit, Bast, Isis, Durga all reflections of the DIVINE FEMININE POWER! The Goddess is very much a part of this multiverse!

  • Robert Dunn
    Robert Dunn

    I'm not sure what to make of this song, is it an attack on the Almighty Himself, saying that He isn't the God for everyone, men and women alike? I hope not because that would be preposterous and make this song out to have an agenda hidden behind it to promote feminism, something God would be against as it goes beyond His original creation and the gender roles He's assigned us since the beginning.

    • mscherrybomb96

      Robert Dunn don’t like the song, don’t listen to it 🤷‍♀️ also just because you don’t agree with it doesn’t mean it’s attacking anything. Live and let live and the world would be a better place 😊

    Who the hell sees this and agrees? This is feminist bullshit. This song is telling girls that, no, society doesn’t give a damn about you being an overweight, baby mutilating, rude, selfish person who takes no responsibility for themselves. I’m a girl. Doesn’t every other girl want to feel and look pretty? To raise your children and keep a beautiful house? To be respected and adored because your sweet and innocent? Woman do have a place and there’s nothing wrong with that. To everyone that’s overweight try your best to look as pretty as you want to be. No man will bend down to kiss your fat ass ladies. Your not meant to die a soldier, your meant to fight the battles of a girl and win with sly words and deadly smiles. Why be a boy when you could be the thing they value and treasure most? Let them worship you for being in your place and keep them in theirs as the protectors

    • Whistling Banshee
      Whistling Banshee

      Strong opinions. Im another woman (23) who is going to give my opinion. I dont want to raise a family. I dont want kids or a beautiful house. I dont need anyone to protect me. I most certainly am not sweet and innocent, and i would much rather be respected for my achievements. I dont want be known as 'what a boy treasures most'. Like something that is kept and on display. But this 'traditional womans role' was what I grew up with, and if thats what you want then great. But the song explains how there are so many role models and destinies for men while women are almost expected to live in their shadow. Live for yourself, not for someone else.

      +Ann Miller - Thank you. I guess this is not a Christian song, so maybe other faiths see God as preferentially blessing men more than women. I don't understand God that way so the song didn't connect with me.

    • Ann Miller
      Ann Miller

      It's talking about how women often feel like they're treated unfairly by a society that seems to focus on men. When the phrase "God for the daughters" comes up, it's basically a plea to God, begging him to bless the girls and women just as he seems to bless the boys and men.

    To me this song was a lie and full of them. The Son of God and the God of man is a womens God too. How do you not realise that? Women yes we are seen as mothers back then and care takers and there is nothing wrong with that. But Not all women wore makeup back then or did only girly things only. Alot of them worked and did hard work. I'm a huge Tom boy born and raised on a farm covered in sweat and dirt a lot. At times I wanna look my best and be girly. You can do both at the same time. My grandmothers and great grandmother work hard, they were the care takers but they also new how to be and act like a lady like men should act like Gentleman. There's is nothing wrong with being a lady and having manners and there is also nothing wrong with being a hard worker or manly. If you really think you can't do things you want because your a women that's ridiculous. If anyone told you that you couldn't do something because your a girl why would you take them seriously. As women we need to stop making excuses for everything. If you wanna do something do it. Get over what you belive society is saying and live your life not others. This song could have been great if they would have not made it about what everyone else thought. Get over it because it's your own fault if you belive all of that.

    • Whistling Banshee

      I do agree, women can do whatever the hell they please, no one is stopping them. But to say there is no prejudice is to be blind to it. I (23F) work as a research scientist for a manufacturing company. Im the only girl in upper management, the rest of my office is 50+ year old men (its an old company, ive no problem with them all being men, theyre all qualified). Almost daily one of the guys will walk past my desk and say 'oh thats some heavy reading, sure you can manage that!' or try to explain my own work back to me. Ive gone into meetings with other companies and seem the look of shock on their faces when they realise a 23 year old with a ponytail is giving the presentation. I am the first girl to be hired to such a high and significant role in this company. So i dont think anything they say or do is intentional, and i love my job. But the fact it happens at all, the fact that its the same thing everyday shows how much... Women can do everything. But its as though society hasnt realised it yet.

    These feminists songs are the worst. Is like this these days. We’re past the point where women are “empowered.” They now war more undergraduate and graduate degrees, Generation Y women now make more money than their male peers, they initiate 80% of divorces, and on and on and on.

      +Candice Westbrook No honey, I'm no part of any movement! I don't need a label to be ok with my life, I'm not so needy that I have to go along with every Jane inserting themselves here, there, and everywhere! It's 2019, women have the ability to be and do everything men are and do! If you ask me, we now are treated more fairly than they are! That is exactly how it seems when a male teacher accused of sexual misconduct will be sentenced to many years in prison usually, but a woman accused of the very same or worse, will escape prison time, and almost escape anything more than a slight smack on the hand! If women in today's feminist movement want equality, give it to them! Sentence them to the same sentence a man would receive, see exactly how they like that equality! I'm proud to be a woman, and I make my own choices, I don't have to march in Washington with a pink p&%sy on my head just because it's the newest trend! To say we aren't treated equally today is really crappy for our grandmothers, great grandmothers, etc. who were really treated unequally!
