This International Women's Day, iHeartRadio is celebrating by once again teaming up with SeeHer (the largest global movement to eliminate gender bias in marketing, advertising, media and entertainment) for iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her: Celebrating Women Who Make Music and Culture — a celebration placing gender equality center stage.
The 2022 iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her event will shine the spotlight on successful and influential artists in music with interviews from Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne and Maren Morris. The second annual show will dive into the lives of these three leading female artists – from their girlhood dreams and the mentors who inspired them, to achieving those goals and becoming leaders and role models for future generations. The special will also share how these artists are using their music platform and social media presence to activate and encourage other women and will explore that while their experiences may come from their lives in the music industry, the challenges they face are universal.
Fans can tune in to watch the iHeartRadio SeeHer Hear Her during a live one-hour special that will stream on iHeartRadio's YouTube and Facebook pages on March 8th at 8pm ET (available on demand through March 14).
Leading up to the event, beginning March 1st, iHeartMedia launched an eight-day countdown to International Women's Day across 600 broadcast stations, on social media, and iHeartRadio's biggest podcasts. The weeklong countdown will culminate on March 8th, when women will be featured throughout the day on popular iHeartMedia radio shows, having conversations about equality, inclusion and inspiration and sharing steps everyone can take to help more women be heard.
Then, during the evening on March 8th from 5-6 pm local time, iHeartMedia radio stations will also devote the hour to playing the biggest hits and new music from today’s female artists and offer special playlists on the iHeartRadio App. Listeners can join in on the conversation online by using #iHeartWomensDay and #SeeHer throughout the day and during the one-hour special on March 8th.
In addition, iHeartMedia and Seneca Women are launching “Seneca Women to Hear: The Search For the Next Great Female Podcasters,” which will kick off the search for the next 10 breakout female podcast stars. The search will be highlighted during iHeartRadio’s SeeHer Hear Her celebration on March 8th with a special appearance from singer, author and host of “Checking In” podcast, Michelle Williams. Ten winners will be awarded top-of-the-line audio equipment and six weeks of specialized training at the Seneca Women Podcast Academy, followed by their own shows on the Seneca Women Podcast Network on iHeartMedia.
