I am part of a collective of ladies organizing an International Women’s Day event at London’s Ace Hotel on the 8th of March that will incorporate both djs and performance art!
International Women’s Day, originally called International Working Women’s Day, is marked as a holiday on March 8 in many countries across the world. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday somehow lost its political flavour, however we don’t want to forget its origins and want to celebrate the social and cultural achievements of the women of the world and also raise awareness towards mistreatment of women.
Excerpts from the event will be broadcast on the Alien Jams show on NTS Radio at 5pm on Sunday 16 March. Tune in to http://ntslive.co.uk/
DJs / sound collage:
Blenda Jaxxon (Castlemania)
Chloe Frieda (NTS / Alien Jams)
Hairy J Blige (Pop Twinette)
Hellenore (Resonance FM)
Lizatron (Dark Star)

All proceeds will be donated to Eaves, a charity which helps women in vulnerable situations and campaigns for a society in which all women live free from violence, exploitation, objectification and discrimination.
