Meghan Trainor's No - Feminist or Not?

Ever since Meghan Trainor's No came out a few weeks ago, my friends have been arguing over whether it should be classed as a feminist anthem or not. On one side is the argument that it should be, because it encourages and empowers women to reject unwelcome advances from men. On the other side is the argument that a song like that actually achieves nothing much, and nothing will change just because of it.

Both arguments look valid. However, let me offer this thought:

Cultural change is a gradual process, made up by many small events and actions. There's no one big act that will change the world, rather, every little bit will help.

So there it is. I believe Meghan Trainor's No is indeed a feminist anthem. Case closed.
