Billboard reports this morning on a new Nashville-based songwriting collective Song Suffragettes which is taking a stand against discrimination and harassment with the song “Time’s Up” whose video made its debut on Friday and which you can watch below. “Co-written by Kalie Shorr and Lacy Green, the song doesn’t mince words about the power imbalances faced by women in every corner of the world. “They say good things come to those who wait, but we’ve waited long enough. Our time is here, our time is now, our time is come,” the members sing in succession, accompanied by an ominous descending piano riff and thunderclap drums. Proceeds from the sale of the song will benefit Time’s Up, an organization and legal defense fund started by women in entertainment to end sexual harassment, assault and abuse against women everywhere.”
