American Voices For A Day Without A Woman

Music, like all art forms, is a way in which we communicate our unique stories across the world. Music crosses the lines of culture, age, and gender, and in sharing it, we connect together to understand others. In honor of International Women’s Day and A Day Without A Woman, we’ve compiled a list of events, collectives, and artists from major cities across the United States for you to celebrate and support all women: cis-gendered women, trans women, non binary and gender fluid women, womyn – whatever your gender identity, your story is important, and the music you use to tell it is too.

This list features UNITED STATES artists, collectives, and events.

So find your city, wear red, and go out this month to support your local female artists.
