WOMAN UP

As an anonymous collective of changemakers, we don't fundraise, have meetings, or host events.
Instead, we shed light daily on the struggles facing the women in country music by:

  • sharing concerns with industry executives and the country music community at large

  • seeking out solutions and offering opportunities that we believe can make a difference

  • supporting actions and advocates that can working to improve the overall culture

We can't do it alone.
We need your help.

We need you to WOMAN UP.

 

Acknowledge

The first step in solving any problem is admitting there is one. Please take time to read the many articles that shed light on the struggles facing women in country music. Listen to women in the industry and those in your own life. Look around to the festivals in your area and listen to the songs being played on your local stations. If you’ve noticed that women are receiving the same or similar marketshare, opportunities, resources, or equality of their male counterparts, we need your help.

Advocate

Share, share, share. First, follow your favorite female artists on social media. Support their art and actions. Next, follow us - we are on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. We keep an active archive of articles and update it frequently. Share the successes and struggles you see the women in country music experiencing. Your advocacy is important and it helps make these issues more unavoidable for the industry's decision makers.

Act

As the Annenberg Inclusion Initiative encourages, we have an opportunity demand with our dollars. Don't buy tickets to festivals without women. Don't stream playlists that aren't inclusive. Turn off radio without representation. Don't quietly excuse inequality. We need #lesstalkmoreaction.

Time's Up on this pervasive problem. Swift action is needed so start doing more. Now.
