about

It's International Women's Day and to celebrate we've recorded a version of the Ivor Cutler song Women Of The World. Originally released by Ivor Cutler and Linda Hirst on Rough Trade in the early eighties, the song is a feminist plea for women to assume power in an attempt to undo the damage done by patriarchal society before it's too late.

Women Of The World is only available to buy from our Bandcamp page for a limited time and all the proceeds go to The Fawcett Society and Chime For Change. As it's a charity single, we made a video for it. Except instead of a video of us singing in the studio holding our headphones, we've made a video of archive footage of the women's movement as well as a roll call of our own personal feminist heroines.

The artwork, which features rabbits with placards in the colours of the Women's Social and Political Union, is inspired by the Gloria Steinem article I Was A playboy Bunny.

Happy International Women's Day
