Happy International Women’s Day fellow DiSers! I wanted to start a thread to celebrate the many amazing (but, unfortunately, often unappreciated) women working in all sectors of the music world.
I’ve been thinking for the past week of a meaningful way to celebrate the amazing music made by women already in this young year. Making lists of your favourite “women’s albums” is often sniped at for ghettoising music made by women (though I think it can still be a good exercise if done sensitively and with the right intentions)
Therefore I thought it might be fun/useful to discuss our favourite albums of the year so far as a whole, and then look in particular at what percentage are made by female artists and groups featuring women/how high they rank.
Or we could do something else. Or we could nuke this thread! Whatever we do, please make sure to appreciate and respect the countless women working in the music industry, not just today, but everyday.
