Why Not Her? is a campaign & social movement that is aimed at amplifying the voices of Womxn in the music, entertainment & the arts industry.
Thank you for taking the time to visit Why Not Her? today. We welcome everyone to the conversation, as its one that should be had. The topic of diversity, inclusion and gender equality is an important issue in our society and culture today.
Despite significant progress towards womxn’s economic independence, womxn are still economically disadvantaged in many ways.
In our first series of reports, we have brought light to how disadvantaged womxn in the music industry are in Ireland & the UK in comparison to their male counterparts by publishing a series of Gender Data Reports. There are many more to follow in more countries, in more continents. But these reports have set the precipice for a lot of change to come, setting off one of the biggest and most historic equality and diversity movements in Irish and Uk music industry history.
We are hoping that by creating awareness around womxn’s inequalities in the areas we highlight (such as gender disparity on the airwaves), a better ease and possibility of legislative change can occur with data empowered studies for anyone or organisation whom may wish to take matters further.
We have learned that data is power. And with these data research studies and reports, we wish to empower you to be the change you want to be in the world, your community or country.
When we come together as a united force of people from all creeds, gender, colour, age and orientation who are no longer accepting inequity and gender bias; anything is possible and we should never ever be afraid to ask the question why not her?
Subscribe to the iTunes Top 200 Uk Chart Why Not Her? Podcast and be inspired by womxn all over the world.
With over 100 million audience reach worldwide in the Gender Disparity Reports, The Why Not Her? movement is one of the biggest Feminist movements, within the music industry, in history.
They have been featured in The Guardian, The Independent, The Times, Irish Examiner, Clash Magazine, Hotpress, BBC, RTE, Dummy, The Irish Times, The Sunday Business Post, MixMag and many more around the globe.
Feel free to check out the reports in our News and Data Reports section on the site.
