WOMAN was started by women who were compelled to stop being complicit in industry known for its bad practices and start being proactive in creating a better culture within country music.

We began this work anonymously - without any names to associate with it, no titles or companies to leverage- and so, for many, no tangible reason for others to join in. All we had one day one was a mission and a message. And we were determined to put in the time and work needed to see a real difference.

We are beyond humbled that anyone has come alongside us to listen, read, share, contribute, and be a part of making positive changes for women in country music.

Being included in any of the following has absolutely blown our mind. Not for our own accolades, as there is no one person to receive them, but for the visibility it has given this cause. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to share more with the following audiences and invite them to join us in creating change:
