Girls Rock Camp Foundation


HerSong donates 3% of all profits to the Girls Rock Camp Foundation. Through lessons, mentorship, positive examples, and the shared experiences of the staff and volunteers, Girls Rock Camps demonstrate that every genre of music, from the heaviest to the most delicate, and every technical job and creative endeavor in the music industry is available to any girl or woman who wants to explore it. By teaching girls that they can be just as comfortable on the stage as in front of it, Girls Rock Camps give girls powerful tools for developing new ideas about who they are and what they can become- in music and beyond. HerSong is proud to support the Girls Rock Camp Foundation.

Why a Women's Music Blog?


The industry’s most in-demand and popular performers right now are women — Ariana Grande dominated the Billboard charts in 2019. Beyoncé signed a $60 million Netflix deal that will see her put out two more specials in addition to her recently released concert film Homecoming. Billie Eilish is a phenomenon. Yet not only is it rare to see a female artist in the headlining spot on a poster, it’s rare to see any but the most well-established female artists perform at a festival in the first place; a 2018 survey by Pitchfork found that women make up only 19 percent of the average festival lineup. The disparity has not gone unnoticed by festival goers — of which about half are women. There is still a long way to go in terms of gender equality in the music industry. FORBES Magazine reported that researchers looked at the 700 top songs on Billboard’s year-end Hot 100 chart between 2012 and 2018. Across the three creative roles highlighted in the study, women make up 21.7 percent of artists, 12.3 percent of songwriters and 2.1 percent of producers. Released just five days ahead of the 2019 Grammy's, data for the nominees of the biggest awards -- Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist and Producer of the Year -- shows that men are vastly over-represented at the awards ceremony. Only 10.4 percent of nominees between 2013 and 2019 were women. Researchers also interviewed 75 female songwriters and producers to gain insight into the “lived experiences of women in music.” Over 40 percent of respondents reported that their colleagues dismissed or discounted their work or skills. Meanwhile, 39 percent have experienced stereotyping and sexualization.
