In a city as uncompromising as New York City, women are exposed to a wide array of life narratives and inevitably, many variations of empowerment and feminism. Is strength found in emulating male dominance? Or embracing every layer of womanhood, with all of its delicate complexities?

Since moving here, I have been privileged enough to meet so many strong, talented, empowered women. Sidewalk NYC – a show featuring local female-fronted bands – was a beautiful manifestation of the sheer abundance of passion and talent embodied by the women of NYC. Enjoy.
