It is a long-awaited, overdue, and pivotal time in our feminine culture. A time when the phrases “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” mean something both hopeful and painful, simultaneously. How do we as a worldwide community of both women AND men embrace our personal responsibility and power to understand, support, and uplift victims of sexual harassment and assault? How do we stand together for the creation of a much bigger… more evolved… more aware world?

How do we cope? How do we relate? How do we connect? And how does our popular culture reflect these themes throughout history?

MUSIC, profoundly impactful throughout history, has always served as a vehicle for those very concepts: Coping. Relating. Connecting.

Dorothy Marcic tried to answer those questions for herself through research of and her own personal connection to popular music.

Marcic asks us the question: What would be the soundtrack to your life? And in asking the question, she uncovers emotional and relational elements of our paths as women, explored through lyrics to popular songs celebrated throughout the past 100 years.

Respect, A Musical Journey of Women gives us a glimpse into our history as described by female artists in popular music.

We, the entirely female production team for Respect… invite you to explore Dorothy’s question for yourself, and ultimately to embrace your own power to shape our next 100 years for the better.

May we all create solutions, connections, and healing. And may we all do so with grace, forgiveness, strength, respect, and of course…MUSIC.
