It’s 2017. We don’t need more Hymns. We need more Hyrrs.
From sexual harassment to rampant body-shaming, workplace inequality to woeful political representation, 2017 has proven the fight to defend women's rights is far from over.
So we thought: what better way to stick it to sexism than by raising money for women in need?
This Christmas, we’ve teamed up with Grey London to release our new album Hyrrs - Festive Hymns Made Feminist to raise money for Refuge. Their incredible work provides life-saving support to thousands of women and children across the country.
So far, the reaction has been incredible. It’s been featured in The Guardian, The Independent, Stylist, Evening Express, Adweek and Campaign, to name just a few. A few of the Hyrrs were also played on BBC 5 Live last week! Thank you for all of the support and for sharing in aid of a good cause! Every penny raised goes to charity.
You can listen to the album and find out more at hyrrsnothymns.com, and most importantly, purchase your copy through iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.
Speaking about the project, chief executive of Refuge Sandra Horley, CBE, said:
“Everyday sexism is sadly still a fact of life and remains a root cause of violence against women. The Hyrrs of the world are often accused of lacking a sense of humour. So, this is a divine opportunity for the Hymns of the world to see the funny side. Otherwise, guess who has the last laugh?”
We wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a fairer, more equal 2018.
