International Women’s Day: Amplifying Voices with 2 Days of Charismatic Content

3 Years Strong
For our third year straight, XRAY celebrates International Women’s Day with a special two-day #AmplifyWomen series of music, stories and discussion. Curated and told from the heart, this potent content focuses on issues pertinent to women, trans and femme livelihood and culture.

Day one of IWD will kick off in the wee hours of Sunday morning, and continue jamming for twenty-four hours straight of creative-juice. free-form radio production featuring songwriters, voices, musicians and producers who all celebrate the spirit IWD.

Day two is twelve hours of unique talk content focusing such topics as “The Cost of Being Intersex”, “Lifting Up Young Women in Art, Power, and Music”, and “Reflecting on 100 Years of Women Voting”. You’ll hear Portland’s community leaders, educators, and artists as they tell their stories to educate and inspire. Full schedule of Monday’s talk content below!

Global Reflections and Individual Development
We celebrate IWD along with many countries around the planet. This year’s global theme is #eachforequal, focusing on the personal responsibility to advocate for an equal world. “Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day. We can actively choose to challenge stereotypes, fight bias, broaden perceptions, improve situations and celebrate women’s achievements.”

We believe distilling personal change is a lot easier when we do it together. We hope to provide inspiration March 8th and 9th by sharing and celebrating IWD with joyful and evocative music and stories from individuals, community leaders and artists.

We want you to interact with us! Text 971-220-KXRY to share your opinions, ideas, stories and feedback throughout the broadcasts.
