This March’s Sass the Patriarchy will involve stellar local Perth/Fremantle acts Axe Girl, Grace Sanders (pictured above) and Hyclass, plus This Way North. During the night there will be performances and discussions with the artists and audience about the present and bright future of gender diversity in the music industry.

This event has also been rolled out in cities such as Auckland, New Zealand, and Vancouver and Edmonton, Canada.
