Woman Up!

Amy Dignam, Susan Merrick and Procreate Project

WomanUp! podcast speaks to and about artists, academics, writers and activists, midwives, carers and more all (m)others and all womxn. Those challenging ideas and ideals, questioning assumptions and provoking social change.

Originally created under the Desperate Artwives collective, from Series 4 Woman UP! has made it's home with Procreate Project. Woman Up! is a podcast dedicated to the people and women that are taking risks. To the ones trying to change current structures founded on biases that have to do with gender, caring responsibilities, race, the integration of the private and the public. We have conversations about lived experiences, achievements, and aspirations and we will share campaigns and awareness around crucial intersectional struggles and subjects.

Woman Up! is produced by Procreate Project, hosted and created by Artists Amy Dignam and Susan Merrick.
