If women’s empowerment would have its own soundtrack, it might be like the
Half the Sky Movement’s “30 Days Campaign”—featuring a new song from a female artist daily from September 3 to October 2. Plus, the great thing is that each offering, from a global sweep of of performers, well-known or emerging, will be available for a FREE download. [If it’s free, it’s for me!]
With songs of solidarity, strength, and reflection, this is truly a celebration in sound, with offerings from Sheryl Crow, India Arie, Norah Jones, and many others. This is part of the celebration of the documentary to be aired on PBS Independent Lens, based on the best-seller Half the Sky:Turning Oppression Into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Scheduled for October 1 and 2, check your local listings for times in your region.
It’s a melting pot of multi-talented, multi-generational performers who donated songs for this movement—all sharing in a common goal. You don’t want to miss any more days to hear these songs. What a wonderful way to open your heart, open you mind, and open your voice in singing out for justice. Visit the website for more info, and to download the daily melodies
