"Women Can Be" is a Sesame Street song about the many careers that women can pursue. Three of them place a spotlight on their own personal stories of success with the medical field, the circus, and rocket science. Other opportunities expressed include everything from an alligator hunter to an office clerk, a police officer to a clown college graduate, a mountain climber to a lumberjack, and a published author to a soda jerk.
Chorus singers include Marilyn Sokol, Carol Hall, Jane Henson, and Rita Moreno. The characters are puppeteered to a pre-recorded vocal track as evidenced by the fact that several women have the same voice, some voices change, and the synch is noticeably off during a few key lines. As such, no one particular character has a designated performer.
- ↑ The song was included in a TV show called Portrait of a Family. The episode "When I Grow Up" (#103) discussed gender roles in the family and used a clip from the song as an example. The end credits include the segment's performers and director (Jon Stone).
