INSPIRING CHANGE, SUPPORTING & INCLUDING WOMEN IN MUSIC.
Donne, Women in Music is a charitable foundation dedicated to achieving gender equality in the music industry. We are here to connect and empower anyone who identifies as a woman in order to create a more equitable music industry.
Together we celebrate, advance, and amplify women in music so that they are seen, heard, and appreciated for their talent so they can leave a legacy of inspiration for future generations.
WHAT WE DO
We create supportive material to educate and transform the future of gender equality in music.
We research the presence of women composers in concerts and advocate for their inclusion.
Furthermore, we raise awareness
and inspire audiences globally
to celebrate women in music.
HERE ARE SOME OF OUR INITIATIVES
THE BIG LIST
The BIG LIST of Women Composers is an ever-expanding list featuring more than 5,000 women composers (and counting).
From pre-medieval composers to 21st century singer-songwriters, pick a country, a century, a music genre:
YOU WILL FIND A WOMAN HERE.
Someone, I tell you, in another time,
will remember us.
We are oppressed by fears
