Literally just a list of 101 songs by 101 incredible women

From Bikini Kill to Ms Dynamite

In celebration of International Women’s Day, we’ve compiled a playlist of 101 songs by a load of incredible female musicians to soundtrack your day.

It’s always been common knowledge that women have been, and are, underrepresented in the music industry, with many female musicians going unrecognised for their work throughout the years: take Sia for example, or the controversy over the Reading and Leeds line-ups being dominated by male bands.

However, that is starting to change, so as an homage to women in music, as well as women in politics, the workplace, the arts, sciences and in general, here is our playlist of 101 songs by 101 incredible women (we couldn’t whittle it down to 100!!), or incredible bands with incredible women in them, featuring some major #tbs and some tracks you may not have heard of.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay
