I just wanted to post up a photo of me at the start of the WomensMarchLondon yesterday in London. It was a really special event, there was no violence , it was peaceful and communal. Women girls old and young partners husbands I'm so glad that I took part.
We all walked to Trafalgar square where the crowd cascaded into song with a disco version of 'We are Family' It showed me that feminism had not died but evolved and was facing a renaissance.
I was thinking a lot about women and music yesterday. As a musician I think there are so many ways that women can help in other in supporting work,practise and music. We can support each other with sharing good practise,building networks,opportunities,reaching out and letting people in.
A friendly smile goes a long way.
We can stand strong against abuse, inappropriate behaviour, rudeness and misogyny.We can show understanding, we can point out bias in programming practise when we see it. There was a really interesting discussion on Monday in City Hall with PRS about 50/50 gender music programming. I think this is the way forward for women in music and I hope this gets developed.
We can stand together, yesterday it was amazing and truly a great day,
