INSPIRING CHANGE, SUPPORTING & INCLUDING WOMEN IN MUSIC.
DONNE is a charitable foundation that is here to make a positive change in the fight against gender inequality within the music industry. Our main goal is to 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.

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
