What we have learnt is that DATA is what is making the difference in terms of getting people’s attention.
Gender inequality in Ireland’s music scene is no longer an opinion by a woman about women’s issues but a harsh reality that any woman who creates music in Ireland faces. Hard data that can not be manipulated or made up.
So with that in mind, we have put together a data collective team as we need to continue the research and collection of data and facts which are leading the campaign.
The data collective team is instrumental in correlating facts and data with regards to issues of inequality across the airwaves and on line ups. We will continue to share the data and reports that we will continue to make and put out to the public. Raising awareness of the Inequality and strive towards changing it and elevating the voices of women in an industry that have muted their voices for far too long.
We have all given our time for free. It’s a labour of love and a deep passion of ours to seek equality. The patriarchal system needs to be dismantled but we can’t do it on our own.
Volunteers will also be doing activist work like emailing td’s and ministers seeking support and sharing the data.
We will always supply the press releases and statements along with assets for the campaign.
Together we feel we can achieve real change.
If you’d like to be part of this and be on the right side of history it’d be awesome.
Warmest regards and thanks so much for getting touch.
