Lyrics
No man in the world
No man in the world

The measure of any society is how it treats it's women and girls

No man is big enough for my arms

No man in the world
No man in the world

No man is big enough for my arms

The measure of any society is how it treats it's women and girls

We create

The smart, powerful, creative, accomplished young women

We can fight

I'm here because of you
I'm here because girls like you inspire me

No man in the world

No man is big enough for my arms

Many of these girls have faced unthinkable obstacles just to attend school

No man

No man is big enough for my arms

No man

The measure of any society is how it treats it's women and girls

Won't stand still

Your story is my story
Your story is my story

Won't be shamed

Your story is my story
Your story is my story

No man

No man is big enough for my arms

No man

And I told them that they should disregard anyone
Who demeans or devalues them
And that they should make their voices heard in the world

No man in the world

No man

I told them, I told them that they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect
And I told them that they should disregard anyone
Who demeans or devalues them
They should make their voices heard in the world

Big enough for my arms

The measure of any society is how it treats it's women and girls

No man in the world
