This Valentine’s Day, punk acts nationwide have come together to support one of the world’s most pressing and ongoing issues: women’s rights. Among rape, thousands of women every day are subjected to genital mutilation, blindly sold as slaves into sex trafficking rings, and are beaten to remain silent.
But, this Valentine’s Day, these punks won’t be silent. Punks for Progress is a campaign to raise awareness and donations for V-Day.org, a movement dedicated to ending violence against women and girls all over the world. Today a compilation of tracks will be offered for a donate-what-you-want price on Bandcamp in an effort to raise funds for the movement, but also to shed a much-needed light on the issue at hand.
The compilation features music from acts as established as The Bouncing Souls to emerging groups such as The Holy Mess, Lost In Society and The Obvious. Other heavy-hitting acts include American Pinup, Detournement, The Jukebox Romantics, Departures, The Scandals, Swaggerin’ Growlers, OC45, Ether Sunday and more.
