Polish women have just lost their right to freedom of choice, dignity, and independence. The conservative Polish government banned almost all abortions – with exceptions only for rape cases, incest, or where the mother’s health is at risk. Poland – a country in the middle of Europe, a member of the European Union, has now one of the most radical and strict abortion laws globally.
DJs and music producers from all corners of the world sent the messages of encouragement and empowering music to Polish women, who fight for their freedom.
We created Polish Women Revolution Tapes to show our solidarity with the female warriors from Poland and from all around the world.
As a Polish woman living far away from my country, I wanted to show support to the women at those incredibly difficult times. I invited my sisters from global female DJ community to share the empowering songs and messages of hope. I was so incredibly happy to receive wonderful responses from the artists. The contribution of the DJs and producers from all the continents brought me a lot of faith and hope. Each DJ/ music producer sent at least 1 track with a short written message of support to the women in Poland. The selected songs got compiled into two mixtapes.
We are female DJs and producers from all corners of the world, supporting Polish Women in their fight. We joined forces to send messages of hope and love to all the female warriors who stood up against oppressive patriarchy.
