End Of The Century presents:

51-52% of the world population identifies as female, but we get one designated month out of the year to celebrate women. What’s more, studies show that there is still a pervasive gender imbalance within the music industry in all aspects: far fewer women are encouraged or empowered to make music, fewer women artists are played on the radio, fewer women songwriters get credited, fewer women are hired as producers, fewer women artists are nominated for awards, fewer women DJs get air-time, which results in the fact that fewer women’s voices and are heard and listened to despite the fact that they make up just over half of the population. WRIR works to combat this gross imbalance with a mission to provide a platform for underrepresented views and voices and in 2021 reported the following facts:

● Women host over half of WRIR’s programming compared to a quarter of average radio airtime nationally.

● WRIR is the only station in Richmond that airs any programming by and for the LGBTQ+ community … This Way Out … The Dyke Agenda … Queer Intersections.
● WRIR is the only station in Richmond airing Indigenous produced programming … First Nations Radio and InterTribal
● WRIR airs content centering the lives and culture of Black people with talk programming Sojourner Truth and Race Capitol and music shows like Motherland Influence and The Other Black Music with ~38% of shows hosts identified as people of color.

 

Representation matters so in light of the data, DJ Miss Kitty is playing two hours of non-stop women who rocked the End of the Century. Party on!
