International Women's Day photo collage "who's who?"

As you may have noticed, today we posted a collage of awesome women in metal to celebrate International Women's Day.  


All of the photos were taken by Craig Andrews at live music events we have been to over the last few years.  Obviously there are many, many more women who also deserve a mention, but these are the ones we have been lucky enough to see and photograph for ourselves. 

You have probably looked through the photos and recognised a lot of these lovely ladies, but just incase, here is a quick look through the photos and a shoutout for each of them.
