With International Women’s Day setting out to forget a more gender-balanced world, it’s only fitting that The Whale should play host to a night of female voices.

Entitled Women At The Whale, the line-up proves just how strong the female voice is in the world right now. As, of course, it has always been, even when some people refused to listen.

From local author Kate Gunn to jazz vocalist Anita Malzone, poet and spoken word performer Bernie D’Arcy and writer Olivia Fitzsimons to spoken word performer Claudia Crampton, comedian and writer Tara Calihman, vocalist Lesley-Ann Whelan, comedian Louise O’Toole and vocalist Anne McInery. Oh, and let’s not forget the vocal harmony group Legato Singers, their blending voices a fitting metaphor for the night in question, and the day that’s in it.
