Every day we celebrate the work of the feminist movement. However, on International Women’s Day, we highlight the progress achieved and the challenges ahead. And among all the platforms there are to empower women, music, time and time again, has served as an engine to carry this message. So, let’s pay tribute to some of the most influential trailblazers in music, such as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and many other jazz queens, whose groundbreaking work has paved the way for generations of women to come.
