Song Suffragettes made a huge donation to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund this week.
Nashville’s all-female singer-songwriter collective does more than just play and write music. They also raise money for causes near and dear to their hearts. On Monday, they came together to celebrate raising $10,000 for the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund through digital sales and streaming of their song, “Time’s Up.”
The song, which was released in January, unapologetically addressed gender inequality and sexual misconduct. Kalie Shorr and Lacy Green penned the track.
“Me and the girls were watching the Golden Globes, drinking wine and wearing all black. During one of the many inspiring speeches that night, I just felt the weight of what was happening — how I was going to tell my daughters and granddaughters about this one day,” Shorr explained.
Song Suffragettes are proud to use that song to help the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund.
“We are inspired by the Song Suffragettes’ commitment to addressing gender inequality across the music industry and we are so grateful for their support of the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, which connects those who experience sexual misconduct and related retaliation in the workplace with legal and public relations assistance. Together, we can create a world that insists on safe, fair and dignified work for women across industries,” the Time’s Up team said.
Although they’ve raised $10,000, they’re not done yet.
“As the song and music video continue to be embraced, we look forward to writing even more checks to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund,” Todd Cassetty, the founder of Song Suffragettes, said. “Hopefully, more media outlets and social media influencers will continue to help spread the word about the song, the organization and most importantly, discrimination issues against women.”
