With well over a century of history and change, the first International Women’s Day (IWD) was held in March 1911. IWD isn’t country, group or organization specific. It’s a day of collective global activism and celebration that belongs to all those committed to forging women’s equality. When we inspire others to understand and value women’s inclusion, we forge a better world. And when women themselves are inspired to be included, there’s a sense of belonging, relevance and empowerment.
For centuries, women and female-identifying people have faced struggle upon struggle in the arts and music world. Particularly, women in jazz. After the success of last years’ International Women’s Day, Emily Gelineau returns to celebrate some of Perth’s strongest, talented, inspiring and diverse female-identifying citizens at The Ellington Jazz Club; the home of jazz in Perth, and a venue that continues to promote and support Women-led initiatives and performances.
The theme of the 2024 International Womens’ Day is “Inspire Inclusion”, and this campaign aims to collectively forge a more inclusive world for women.
Join Emily, her all-female house band and an array of special guests to celebrate and promote the future for Women in Music, and Women in Jazz.
