FBi Radio Celebrates International Women’s Day 2019

March 7th 2019

March 8 is International Women’s Day and we’re spinning exclusively wom*n and non-binary artists all day long – celebrating their successes and asking questions about culture, gender, identity and intersectionality.

Got a fave you want to give a shout-out to? Let us know via text on 0409 945 945 and make sure you keep it locked throughout the day to hear from inspiring women and non-binary people who are making art and making change.
