Bad Ass Bitch of the Week: Erel Pilo

erelErel Pilo, singer/songwriter, and our bad ass bitch of the week, is making it rain female empowerment by hosting a concert to celebrate Women's History Month. 'A Night of Sirens' will feature 20 singer-songwriters, mostly women, sharing songs that symbolize the beauty of the female spirit. The show will include a variety of musical genres including indie, folk, jazz, country (Feminist Wednesday is singing Dolly Parton!), rock and even poetry.  Proceeds from 'A Night of Sirens' will benefit "Made by Survivors," a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering survivors of human rights abuses including slavery and sex trafficking.

Erel told us she was really motivated to put on the event because "Women's History Month is great in that it brings attention to women's rights, but the word "history" implies that our struggles were in the past, and I think they are very much still happening in the present tense." We couldn't agree more! Ms. Pilo has been gracing the city with her lovely and soulful style for the past two and a half years and says the best part of performing is "feeling connected to the audience. When they are engaged with whats happening on the stage, it can feel amazing."

Come engage with Erel and the Feminist Wednesday team March 20th at the legendary Bitter End in NYC at 9pm. For more details on performers check out their official Facebook page. And don't forget to check out Erel's debut EP Drone.
