hardcore * punk

War On Women je smíšená feministická hc punková kapela, která vznikla v roce 2011 v Baltimoru. Na posluchače a posluchačky útočí nejen pomocí naléhavých riffů, ale i obsahem textů, které zpěvačka Shawna Potter neváhá během koncertů vpálit publiku přímo do obličeje. Chytlavé a zároveň silně konfrontační songy se mimo jiné dotýkají problematiky rape culture, sexuálního obtěžování ve veřejném prostoru, genderové platové nerovnosti a transfobie. Na kontě má kapela dvě LP u Bridge Nine Records: War on Women (2015) a Capture the Flag (2018), a řadu turné a koncertů, kdy se na podiu střídali s Refused, Propaghandi, Anti-Flag, Boy Sets Fire, RVIVR, Dismemberment Plan a řadou dalších. Shawna Potter je také autorkou knihy Making Spaces Safer: A Guide to Giving Harassment the Boot Wherever You Work, Play, and Gather.

War On Women is a co-ed feminist hardcore-punk band. Formed in Baltimore, MD in 2011, W.O.W. use driving riffs and in your face vocals that attack the listener both sonically and lyrically, penning catchy and confrontational songs that touch on rape culture, street harassment, the gender wage gap, transphobia, and other vitally pertinent social issues. They have two full-lengths via Bridge Nine Records under their belt: War on Women (2015) a Capture the Flag (2018). They have been touring relentlessly since their debut album sharing the stage with such bands as the Refused, Propagandhi, Anti-Flag, Boy Sets Fire, Jello Biafra, RVIVR, Iron Reagan, Dismemberment Plan, and Shai Hulud. The band's singer Shawna Potter is also the author of the book Making Spaces Safer: A Guide to Giving Harassment the Boot Wherever You Work, Play, and Gather.
