Sounding the Feminists is an Irish-based, voluntary-led collective of composers, sound artists, performers, musicologists, critics, promoters, industry professionals, organisations, and individuals, committed to promoting and publicising the creative work of female musicians.
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 island-wide, who are working in many areas of the music sector. We seek to do so by working with partner groups on the following priority areas:
Dr. Karen Power
Dr. Ann Cleare
Dr. Laura Watson
Dr. Jenny O'Connor-Madsen
