In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8), we’ve curated a playlist that highlights women who challenge the status quo. While there were so many angles we could have taken with this playlist, we decided to focus on more recent times rather than taking a deeply historical perspective. If you feel those are missing and want to hear more about the history of women’s rights, check out some of the bonus episodes below the main playlist.
Trans Awareness Week (TAW) is November 13-19. During the week, people and organizations raise the visibility of transgender people and address issues members of the community face. TAW always precedes Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), which is on November 20. TDOR honors the memory of the transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence that year. This playlist offers an opportunity to hear about the wide range of experiences transgender people have.
