This is manifest via actions such as others trying to control what they say or do. But the type of ‘girls’ the singer is referring to are those who do not let such instances persuade them. Indeed even in the face of such opposition they are brave, vociferous and effective.  Simply put, they’re strong and resilient women.

Thus on one hand Bebe, also referring to herself as such a lady, heralds the tenacity of her peers. And on the other she is telling their aforementioned opponents that in reality they do not possess the wherewithal to stop the progress of she and her ilk.
