Sisters are doin' it for themselves - Eurythmics and Aretha Franklin

'Sisters are doin' it for themselves' was written by Eurythmics members Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart. It was intended as a feminist anthem. They recorded the track together with American soul/R&B musician Aretha Franklin and released as a single by RCA Records in October 1985. It was featured on both Eurythmics' 'Be yourself tonight' and Franklin's 'Who's zoomin' who?' albums.

The single reached number 18 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and number 9 in the UK Singles Chart.
