Happy International Women’s Day for Thursday!

IWD was especially meaningful to me this year, because this was the first time I’ve ever done something IRL to celebrate.


I spent the morning at the One of One Breakfast at the gorgeous Abbotsford Convent, in a room of over 150 talented and amazing women in music (many of whom I consider friends, and have had the pleasure of working with over the past decade).

I teared up during Stella Donnelly’s performance of Boys Will Be Boys (content warning: this song is about sexual assault and victim blaming), and then just full-on cried during Linda Bosidis’ heartfelt keynote speech about her late husband Dean Turner, her children, and being a Virgoan quiet-achiever in a male-dominated industry. Read her speech and weep here. Kudos to One of One’s incredible founders Sarah Hamilton, Vader Fame and Joanne Cameron.

On the Bolster front, Lauren and I (ahem, but mostly Lauren TBH) put together little pearls of wisdom from the women of Bolster. Check it out here, and we also put together a Spotify playlist celebrating just a handful of our fave women.

I’ve been kicking around the music industry for 9 years now, and it’s absolutely heartwarming to see all the other women who started at the same time as me still around, smashing goals. All of us who were interning and undertaking every single shit paying, shit kicker job in the late noughties now all work full time in the industry, working for labels, radio stations or promoters, or running their own businesses.

Here’s to another decade of women in music!

P.S. Fun fact: companies that have higher female representation on their boards make more money.
