Price was the second performer of the special. Margo teamed with her husband, Jeremy Ivey, for “Pay Gap” from her All American Made album. “Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a feminist icon and a hero to so many,” Price noted before her performance. “She was the very definition of truth, justice and honor. Ruth fought for women’s rights and equal pay but she also fought for equality for all and how it could benefit all.”
Hayley Williams dedicated a performance of “Roses/Lotus/Violet/Iris” to “the women in my family who overcame sexual and domestic violence” and “all victims of sexual and domestic violence.”
Phoebe Bridgers contributed a performance of “Graceland Too” from the recently released Punisher to the special. Bridgers was backed by Harrison Whitford and Marshall Vore as per Brooklyn Vegan.
