Sounding the Feminists is an Irish-based collective committed to promoting and publicising the creative work of female musicians.
STF champions the principles of equality, fairness, inclusivity, and diversity. We affirm the need to take conscious steps to ensure that these principles inform Irish musical life. We want audiences to hear the voices of those who continue to be marginalised due to their sex, gender identity, sexuality, race, and class.
STF recognises that contemporary attitudes, policies, and practices towards music and gender are often built on institutions and traditions that resist change. In solidarity with ground-breaking sister movements such as Waking the Feminists, the STF Working Group was established in 2017. We aim to take positive action to improve the representation of women across the Irish music sector and communities.
