East Meets West – Pick of the Week: Happy International Women’s Day!

8th March was International Women’s Day and we brought some empowering anthems and special guest action to your ears for the occasion!

We caught up with Ruby from the UK charity Bloody Good Period and found out more about the Women of the World Festival that’s kicked off at London’s Southbank Centre this weekend.

Plus we heard music from Beyonce, Faye Wong, Lauryn Hill, Tizzy Bac, MIA, Jolin Tsai, The Cranberries, ACRUSH and many more.
