Women working on passion-filled projects are keeping it together for their community, despite the lack of credit or gender wage pay gap, from taking care of each other to facing the hard truths. National issues are often ignored as political, nothing to do with what is happening locally. But that is just a way for people to be comfortable with things as they are rather than face what needs to be addressed.


Passion-filled projects focus on the issues that anyone who makes a living from profiting off of the labor of others would want to suppress. Women having free rights may be normalized in society, but women being treated equally as workers is not typical. On the surface, businesses act accepting of all sexual identities. But on the books, the numbers don’t lie.


In a male-dominated work society, the heart of business is femininity. It takes being an active part of a community to survive, not just making money off of whoever possible. If financial worth defines the recognition of work instead of the consequences, then progressive initiatives will always be considered passion-filled projects while corruption gets industry verification. It shouldn’t be a problem for anyone to simply begin treating working women as equals. Even recently, men around the music scene constantly ask, “Whose girlfriend are you?” even in conversations when planning events as if a woman could not possibly be the one making business decisions.
