Hen House is closing the gender gap in music production roles through opportunities, acknowledgment, and empowerment to female audio engineers, photographers, videographers, and musicians.
Think of what you wanted to be when you were a little kid. You probably wanted to become your favorite basketball player, or a scientist, a chef, an astronaut, or a famous singer…
These role models are so important because if you see someone like you in a role, you'll believe that you can do it, too.
Only 2% of all audio engineers are female and 20% of film producers are female. This lack of role models for girls leads to less womxn in the fields, creating an ongoing cycle;
Hen House exists to break that cycle.
Hen is a Swedish, genderless pronoun that represents our idealism of equality in the music industry that we are striving for through our three components of HEN:
We showcase our mission by putting on shows entirely run and produced by females and Highlight the talented womxn working it
We Empower young womxn to pursue the field by providing role models, education, & mentorship programs
Provide a supportive network to help womxn Navigate the industry and increase involvement
