The music of the Misogyny Opus is designed to inspire conversation and create positive change by encouraging the active interruption of the cycles of inequality throughout society. Singer-songwriter and international performer Karen Jacobsen is passionate about creating a world where all individuals are treated with respect, and as equals. This is a fundamental right for every human being. The activation of this project includes live performances, a regional tour, a documentary and Q&A conversations. This has the potential to create a powerful shift by empowering women to use their voices, ensuring men understand that equality benefits everyone, and educating young people about the history of misogyny. This performance is both a powerful piece of music, and an educational opportunity to build a shared understanding of these behaviors and encourage advocacy.
