The Doubleclicks – Women Know Math ft 50 Artists | Video

‘Women Know Math’ is a beautiful, sensitive and strong song promoting a positive message to women everywhere.

The Doubleclicks are sisters (Angela Webber and Aubrey Webber) from Portland, Oregon whose new song ‘Women Know Math’ is not only beautiful and sensitive, but promotes a strong message highlighting their frustration with  close minded preconceptions of how women are “supposed to act”.

Honest lyrics expose the hypocrisy behind the thought process of how some perceive a woman should behave; You gave us dolls and then you told us they were dumb, You told us we’d get hurt if we had too much fun, You see the problem? Women know math, You can’t tell us to do a thing, and then when we do it, laugh.

Emphasising the messages conveyed in the song, each phrase in the video is accompanied by an illustration. The Doubleclicks’ Angela Webber explains, “We wanted the message of the song to reach beyond our own limited experience as white women, so we reached out to the Internet and hired 50 artists”, she continues, “Many of our artists drew themselves, which is wonderful. There are artists of all ages and professions, including several scientists”.

‘Women Know Math’ is the first song from their next album ‘Love Problems’. The album will be their fifth full-length release.

The pair launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the project and have already passed their $35,000 target. But with around twenty days still remaining there’s still plenty of time to head over and pre-order the new album, grab some merchandise and other exclusive incentives too.
