Our vision is to give women 1. Support, 2. Education, 3. Exposure and promotion and 4. Starting a conscious change of how society see women in music. It is to keep hope in women's dreams alive be staying in the music, making the appropriate choices for themselves and
1. Support is provided by networking, gatherings, and boosting confidence. 2. Education is offered through seminars, panels, discussion groups, classes, leadership role models and helping to give experience. 3. Exposure and promotion is given through showcase opportunities, CD compilations, internet radio shows, and access to women in the field. 4. The change on society's views is both internal and external. By nurturing confidence and inner strength, we can start the change of how we see ourselves, effecting how others see us. Externally, we want to free our status from "gimmick" to substance. From seen as sex first to a musician first, we want to raise the bar of musicianship and business leadership to start a totally equal world of music.
We are now in need of volunteers to help. If you’d like to be on this committee, please e-mail us.

This showcase is more than a performance, we are creating a supportive community for women and their music. We are promoting the talented and hard working women and girls of our area while raising money for many worthy causes. The Minnesota Coalition for Battered Women is a great facility that helps train and fund homeless shelters for women all over Minnesota. We are proud to be working with them. You can visit them at www.mcbw.org.
You may also visit us at www.wimmn.com to find out more about us. We are an organization that supports, promotes and educates women (obstacles are different for women in music. They have children, home life, they make less money, self esteem).
Women Reign is women helping women keep their dreams alive!
