March is Women's History Month and March 8th marks International Women's Day. All month on WKAR's 90.5 Classical, you'll find information about the influential voices in classical music as well as some of the voices repressed because of their gender, from Haydn's downstairs neighbor, to the youngest winner of the Pulitzer Prize for music.

On this page throughout the month of March, we'll assemble the various musicians being highlighted, plus add links to both hear their music and in some cases purchase the sheet music of their works.

A national protest is calling for women to take the day off of work and avoid shopping today.

Women’s March the same group that organized January’s March on Washington planned “A Day Without a Woman” to coincide with International Women’s Day.
