Subject: #TradStandsWithHer

Initiative to combat the sexual exploitation of young women in the folk/trad scene, starting in Scotland. I got it from the harpist Ailie Robertson on FB. It seems to involve most of the Scottish women trad performers of her generation and younger that you'll have heard of.

From Lori Watson:

I’ve been party to these discussions and it’s been on my mind for some time - how can we best support each other and move forward as a community in the traditional arts?

Among other things, there has to be collective responsibility.

If we’re unaware, silent or waiting - we need to learn more and take and support positive, constructive actioIf we’re aware and not sure what to do then now is the time to call out sexist attitudes, actions, conversations and exploitative, unbalanced or unsafe situations.

If we’re guilty of contributing to sexual harrassement and assault or the situations and beliefs that lead to it - we can also seek help to address this constructively.

The first step is acknowledgement and support for those speaking out now - I hear you and believe you and I’m here to support you.

Official statement:

A growing number of young female musicians are risking their livelihoods and forfeiting their anonymity in order to speak out about their personal experiences of sexual abuse, assault, harassment and coercion by men on the folk and traditional music scene, both in Ireland and the U.K.

We acknowledge their honesty, courage, anger and pain, and their right to seek justice.

As a diverse musical community, and industry, we must not respond with silence, or complicity.

We are calling on folk and traditional music organisations, artists, festivals, industry workers, education establishments, music fans and audiences to support a fundamental culture change that ensures women's safety, equality and dignity.

We need a code of ethics, which protects women in folk and traditional music from sexual harassment and assault, and sends a clear zero tolerance message to male perpetrators.

This is the moment to redress power imbalances, promotes a culture of respect, trust, and equality and create safe, collaborative environments in which all folk and traditional musicians can share and enjoy the music that we love.

Look at #TradStandsWithHer on Twitter. LOTS of high profile women performers joining in, and it's gone south of the border with a supportive tweet from the EFDSS.

I've seen what she's describing rather often.
