I’d like to start by saying thank you to everyone who came
out to our gig at the Map Studio Café last week, it was a lot of fun and great to be back down into the big smoke again, even if only briefly.
Next, most of you will be aware that today marks International Women’s Day. We whole heartedly support the need to raise awareness of the litany of both historic and contemporary women of note, as well as to recognise and appreciate every woman and girl who raises up to face the modern-day struggles 100 years after women won the right to vote. It is clear that many sectors of the modern day world are still patriarchal in nature and it is important to instill in women of all ages a belief that they belong in the upper-echelons of whatever walk of life they choose to devote themselves to, to offset generations of historic oppression
For anyone who’s interested, vogue published an interview with Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu, founder of the Women in Leadership publication and co-organiser of Women’s March London, on the significance of IWD and the advancement of women across the globe. It’s definitely worth 5 minutes of your time.
There are a lot of great, up-coming, female fronted bands; some of our favourites include Hinds, Dream Wife, Black Honey, Kate Tempest and
Nicotine, along with a load of others. You should check them out.
Finally, on a brief side note, tomorrow is my birthday.
So yay for me.
