1BTN ’s annual all day female takeover returns Monday 8th March for 27 hours of femme-focused music and entertainment to soundtrack your International Women’s Day celebrations.
This year, 1BTN International Women’s Day Takeover will be fundraising for RISE , a Brighton based domestic violence and abuse charity that has worked for 26 years to end all forms of violence and abuse against women, their families and those identifying as LGBTQ+. RISE stands for Refuge, Information, Support and Education; our strategic mission is: freedom from abuse and violence. RISE reaches across East Sussex and Brighton & Hove, providing wrap-around services for adults and children on their recovery journey, following experiences of domestic abuse. Our essential services include specialist one-to-one therapy, therapeutic survivor groups, an LGBTQ+ refuge, work with children and families, as well as community engagement projects.
The IWD21 campaign theme #ChooseToChallenge will be at the heart of the day. We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women's achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From midnight on Monday 8 March till 3am on Tuesday 9 March, the airwaves of 1BTN will be filled with a range of diverse genres including funk, soul, house, afrotech, alt-80s, disco, dub, electronica, Grime, hip hop, house, indie, jazz, Latin, new wave, psych, punk, R’n’B, reggae, riot grrrl, rock, ska, and techno as we celebrate the women in music who have soundtracked our lives.
