Response by poster: For clarification: Saw the rage playlist question already. I’m looking for slightly more specific than just general rage.

Just happened to see this, may not be specifically in the smash-the-patriarchy vein but as a general sentiment it was specifically dedicated to the Supreme Court judges:

I like the women of punk rock for this:

Seneca Falls by The Distillers is about women's suffrage, with the refrain "they cried 'freedom, rise up for me'".

Take Back The Power by The Interruptors has "What's your plan for tomorrow/ Are you a leader or will you follow/ Are you a fighter or will you cower/
It's our time to take back the power"

Most of Chumbawamba's Showbusiness might count (well, and quite a bit of their catalogue). "Stitch" may be the most obviously appropriate track.

Generally, Liz Phair, Bikini Kill, L7, Hole… and any 90s/early 00s Riot girl music that just feels angry and strong even if the lyrics don’t match. A few examples:

Sonic Youth Kool Thing
Lush Ciao!, Ladykillers
Bikini Kill Rebel Girl, and my own personal favorite song when I’m very angry Suck my left one
L7 Fuel my fire
