'Women In Music' Print For International Women's Day
March the 8th every year is 'International Women's Day', a global holiday to commemorate the cultural, political and socioeconomic achievements of women, and we love to celebrate it here as Disko Kids.
Each year we release a limited edition print, featuring some of the greatest female recording artists from the last few decades - here are some of our previous designs, celebrating the singer songwriters who paved the way for future generations....
Personally, I don't remember International Women's Day being around much when I was younger, I have asked a few of the team here and they have said the same. I looked up the history of this day and apparently it was first celebrated in 1911! We had no idea!
So we have some catching up to do, but I will definitely be speaking to my husband and kids about the importance of this day, so they have memories and learnings to carry with them and to look back on when they are older.
Perhaps next year we can add some new names - let us know in the comments who you would love to see featured!
We are also excited to be supporting the charity Womankind Worldwide, who do amazing work to support and empower women across the world. With £4 from the sale of every Women In Music Sweatshirt and £2 from every Women In Music TShirt going directly to the charity, we really feel that this is an important and necessary cause.
We hope you love the designs as much as we do, and enjoy however you choose to mark International Women's Day.
