International Women’s Day is an opportunity for us all to make a positive contribution to the drive to achieve gender equality. This celebration allows us to shine a magnificent spotlight on the achievement of women across all aspects of society, and from all around the world. Thus are the vital stepping stones formed across which we can forge towards the ambition of equality for all.

I’ve been having such fun looking through a whole load of links and material, much of which showcases ‘forgotten’ women musicians and their work. I have added some weblinks below for you to browse through. And first here is a playlist of a few of my favourite musical finds (how difficult it was to choose just a few!). Some are new to me; others are just a wonderful reminder of oldies but goodies. Enjoy! πŸ™‚

  1. What a treasure of music for International Women’s Day 2019. We are still celebrating here on my side of the world – you have already moved into a new year of making a “positive contribution to the drive to achieve gender equality.” Sending hugs your way.

  2. I loved listening to all your choices! I was interested to hear the Madeline Dring song using Betjeman’s poem and who can resist the inimitable Shirley Bassey!
