That’s right ladies, a woman has finally been named as the presidential nominee for a major party. Bout time, right? In honor of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s major achievement as the 2016 nominee for the Democratic Party, here are 45 songs for the woman who has inspired so many and could be the 45th President of the United States!

1. “Castle” – Halsey

10. “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’” – Nancy Sinatra

If you’re a 2000s girl, then you might be more aware of Jessica Simpson’s version of this song for “The Dukes of Hazzard,” but you just can’t beat Nancy Sinatra’s original.

20. “Stupid Girls” – P!nk

Lyric: “What happened to the dream of a girl president?”

Well, Pink, she’s not “dancing in the video next to 50 Cent” anymore. I mean, someone somewhere probably is… But it’s definitely not gonna be HRC.

21. “Fighter” – Christina Aguilera

22.“So what” – P!nk

23. “Try” – Colbie Caillat

24. “Confident” – Demi Lovato

Because this song is so good, both versions belong on this list.

26. “Video” – India Arie

27. “Supergirl” – Krystal Harris

Don’t lie, you know you loved this song when it played during “The Princess Diaries.”

28. “Sisters Are Doin’ It For Themselves” – Eurythmics, Aretha Franklin

29. “You Gotta Be” – Des’ree

30. “You don’t own me” – Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton

This isn’t the original song, or the latest cover/remix of the song (which you’ve probably heard in one of the many “Suicide Squad” trailers), but it’s definitely a great version (Bette Midler can do no wrong, duh).
