UMe Releases Official Music Video For Helen Reddy’s ‘I Am Woman’

In honor of Women’s History Month and the 50th anniversary of Helen Reddy’s hit song “I’m a woman“, UMe is releasing a fully restored 4k version of the official 1972 music video, digitized from the original 16mm film by the National Film & Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA).

“The NFSA is delighted to partner with the UMe to undertake the detailed digitization and remastering of this important piece of Australian music history,” said NFSA Chief Curator Gayle Lake. “The skill and dedication of our film and audio technicians have resulted in a beautifully remastered music video for this iconic Australian song. The original film and remastered music video will add to our extensive collection of Helen Reddy material – an incredibly talented and influential figure – whose legacy lives on through this groundbreaking song. We’re proud to help celebrate Helen Reddy and ‘I Am Woman’ during Women’s History Month.”

“I Am Woman” was written by Reddy, noting an absence of songs addressing the subject of what it means to be a woman. She hoped to create a piece that would fuel the passion for female empowerment that she embodied in her own life. The track reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and shaped an entire generation of women whose equal rights activism reverberates to this day.

In addition to the video, UMe’s I AM WOMAN-themed Women’s History Month celebration includes an inspirational public mural; new stories featuring women in music and custom merchandise buy from uDiscover, the online store where fans dig deeper into the music of their favorite artists; an I AM WOMAN playlist with uplifting songs from around the world; and I AM WOMAN-themed EPs on streaming platforms.
