Her Sound, Her Story: new doco shines a light on women in the Aussie music industry

In an increasingly self-aware climate, issues facing women in the male-dominated music industry are clearer than ever. Now, a new documentary titled Her Sound, Her Story shines a spotlight on the reality of life for ladies in the business.

As part of the eleventh annual Human Rights Arts & Film Festival, Her Sound, Her Story explores the ongoing conversation around gender inequality within the music industry.

Filmmaker Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore and photographer Michelle Grace Hunder have brought the project to life through their dedication to documenting, celebrating and inspiring women.
