Here is this month’s Girls Against reading list – the best writing on women, gender, music, and art from all over the internet.
The 8th of March saw International Women’s Day celebrating women all over the arts, media and public sphere. Why choose just one day? Let’s celebrate creative women every day.
And we’d love you to let us know what we’ve missed. What was your favourite article, published in the last month, that discusses women and gender in music and the arts? Tweet us @girlsagainst and share what you’ve been reading!
