Founded by Emma Burgess-Olson, Frankie Hutchinson, and Christine Tran, Discwoman is a New York-based platform, collective, and booking agency representing and showcasing cis-women, trans-women and genderqueer talent that are often underrepresented in many scenes of electronic music.
A nostalgic re-gendering of the popular portable CD player, the name Discwoman is a nod to the transformative power of feminist collective action.
