Welcome! This is probably the most extensive collection of sites dedicated to the
music of women on the internet. Women have made a rise in the music industry and I feel that it is
time that they receive the proper credit. There are tons of web pages out there
that are dedicated to the likes of women artists and I want to bring us all
together through Out of the Shadows ~ Women's Rise in Music. If you have a site that you'd like to feature here,
Women musicians of today such as Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan, Tracy Chapman, Paula Cole, Fiona Apple, Joni Mitchell, Ani
Difranco, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Erykah Badu, Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige,
Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliot, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire, Indigo Girls,
Lorenna McKennitt, Sheryl Crow, Tara McLean, Natalie Merchant, Joan Osborne,
the cranberries, Kate Bush and many more are all welcome to join the ring. Musicians such as Judy Garland, Patsy Cline, Billie Holiday, Janis Joplin, Etta James, and the Supremes of yesterday still live through the WWW! The purpose of Out of the Shadows ~ Women's Rise in Music is to bring together and celebrate women and a common bond - music. There are no restrictions on "type" of music. About 1/4 of the ring is made up of Independent artists! These are hard-working, raw musicians with immense talent who need exposure. Please check out this wonderful quality which this ring features! If you are a musician and a woman, please use this collection to "expose yousrself"! Another feature of the collection is the "Site of the Week" Award. This is a weekly award that anyone can vote on. Three sites in the collection are nominated the winners are featured on the Site of the Week page.
I have made a few HTML Ring Codes for you to choose from and have finally gotten rid of the older ones, check it out! Please support the greatest musicians in the world! The Lilith Fair was the beginning and because of a love of the combination: women and
music, there is no end.......
As with almost everything, there has to be a few rules. Your page must have the correct HTML code on it to be part of the ring. If it doesn't, it will stay in the queue. The ring code doesn't have to be on the first page, although it's very nice for people surfing the ring. It does, however, have to be "easy-to-find". Links and Webring sections are perfect. If they're difficult to find, then your site will also stay in the queue. I've had people complain about not finding the HTML codes on pages.
The other rule applies to nominations and votes for the Site of the Week. If you decide to nominate a site, you *must* vote for one of the current nominations. Any nominations coming without a vote will be trashed. This is to ensure that the current nominations are not "looked-over". Once you have the proper HTML format on your page, Out of the Shadows ~ Women's Rise in Music promises that we will never ask for you to modify it. This is something that many other rings have a habit of doing. It's annoying and we'll have none of that on this ring. That's just a little plus for our members. =)
