Smash The Glass 2009

Smash the Glass; a non-profit musical showcase entitled to empower women. Smash the Glass is a response to the lack of support towards female musicians in our city. "Smashing the Glass," comes from an understanding of the glass ceiling theory that describes the fact that women are limited as to how far they can advance up organizational ranks, the 'ceiling' is glass because it is transparent because limitations are not immediately apparent.

This DIY project started as an idea in April, 2007, while Sonia Nizzer was sitting in Nancy Gobatto’s Generation X, Third Wave Feminism class and was brought to life by herself and a close group of friends. We are back this year, to offer a stage, a podium, a foundation of motivation, support and ambition to those women who just want a chance to show YOU what they've got! We encourage men and women, all ages, to support this event. This is about celebrating and encouraging the females around us!

The festival will be two days this year, starting March 26 @ Phog Lounge and moving to the Chubby Pickle on March 27th. We hope that all who enjoyed last year's event come out again this year to recognize women in music! Tune into CJAM 91.5fm from 5 to 6 tonight for a special Smash The Glass segment of Milk and Vodka by myself and Nicole Markham (performer). We'll be chatting about the festival and playing the artists who you should come and check out this weekend!
