International Women’s Day

In 2015, we’re celebrating International Women’s Day with the theme/hashtag: #MAKEITHAPPEN.

All over the world, International Women’s Day representing an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women, all the while calling for greater equality. Make It Happen is the theme in the hopes of encouraging effective action for advancing and recognizing women.

Following its debut in 1911, International Women’s Day (IWD) has made March 8th a busy day, marking the economic, political, and social achievements of women, and also becoming a day of encouragement to women and girls of all ages.

Planet Stereo would like to continue to spread the message of equality and celebration. Being involved in the entertainment industry, in any form, is intimidating. But more and more, we see women taking on roles in the industry that seemed to once be exclusive to men: musicians, producers, light techs, roadies, guitar techs, tour managers, record executives, A&R, directors, writers, and more.

And it doesn’t stop there! More women are becoming doctors, scientists, politicians, detectives, police officers, athletes, and more!

So let’s keep it going, ladies (and gents! Gender equality is everybody’s concern.)!

In 2015, let’s #MakeItHappen, and reach for some extraordinary new feats. If there’s something you want, go for it, and let’s also make sure to share this message to all little girls: “Yes, you can be Dr. Princess Rockstar DuPree. Oh, yes, I’d love to discuss your new book at your tea party after the UN Conference! Want to play a game of basketball next Saturday?”
