What songs do you know about women dumping men?

Some friends and I were out and Before He Cheats came on the jukebox, and it got us talking about songs about women who dump men, not the break up songs that are romantic, or emotional, so much as those ones that go to the next step of coming back and being strong again, moving on. So what would your list be? Not sappy songs but songs about women kind of standing tall or fighting back, some ideas we came up with:Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood Bye Bye by JoDee Messina Picture to Burn by Taylor Swift Nobody by Sylvia Sucks to be You by Danielle Peck Watch Me Walk Away by Lorrie Morgan Should've Said No by Taylor Swift Snapshot by Sylvia I Don't by Danielle Peck Did Ya Understand That by Willa Ford He Just Doesn't Get It by Sarah Buxton Red High Heels by Kellie Pickler When Did You Ever Listen to Me by Rebecca Lynn Howard Blame It On Your Lying Cheatin' Heart by Patty Loveless I Won't Stand In Line by Reba McIntyre I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor Good As I Was To You by Lorrie Morgan These Boots Are Made For Walking by Nancy Sinatra Take It Back by Reba McIntyre What songs can you add? This got us talking about songs that are about women being strong or telling it like it is or stating what they want Superwoman by Karen White All Woman by Lisa Stansfield Respect by Aretha Franklin I Am Woman by Helen Reddy I'm a Survivor by Reba McIntyre Any suggestions do you have any favorites? Of course this also lead to other variations and we got to dividing the songs up by sappy love crying over losing songs, coming back from the break up songs such as some above or getting even songs as some of them are, or this also lead to women empowerment songs, So care to share some of your favorites? How do you classify them? Do you separate them by the slower ones and faster tempo ones? Or by the message in the lyrics?

Well I'm blanking on songs of women dumping men but I know several of women giving men what for, especially by Loretta Lynn. Songs like: "Your Squaw is on the warpath tonight" "You ain't women enough to take my man" "Fist City" "The Pill" "Don't Come Home A'Drinkin' (With Lovin On Your Mind)" To me those are standing tall songs. She really laid it out and told him I'm not putting up with it anymore with those songs.
