Celebrating International Women's Day 2015 - March 8th

International Women's Day is celebrated each year on March 8th throughout the world. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation and love towards women to a celebration for women's economic, political, and social achievements. This year the UN theme for International Women's Day is "Empowering Women, Empowering Humanity: Picture it!" and the overall International Women's Day theme is "Make It Happen."

As is becoming tradition, Femetalism celebrates this day with a selection of photographs taken throughout the previous 12 months at the live music events we have attended.  We couldn't wait until tomorrow to share this incredible selection of female metal, rock and alternative musicians that we have had to pleasure to see perform this year and so here it is.

Can you spot anyone you know?  Do you recognise the event we photographed them at?  Do you see yourself? A high res version of this image can be viewed here. All original photographs used for the collage can be found on our photos page. Comment and let us know!
