International Women's Day

I just wanted to take a moment to remind people that today is International Women's Day. More often then not, especially in pop culture I often hear this question: "Why are there no women ____ (photographers, writers, in a certain music genre etc.)". The question we should be asking is: "Why are we not listening/looking/reading/finding them?" because women are there, in every scene of pop culture. What I am getting at is that today, if you especially like the folk-psychedelic scene in Santa Cruz, science fiction writing, stand-up comedy, or whatever it is that tickles your fancy, find the women in that scene and listen/read/dance to them.

I did that today. I took the time and I found a list of 30 amazing women photographers who make a point of crashing through the barrier of a male-dominated field and pointing out that women are relevant behind the lens and not just in front of it.
