War on Women is a hardcore punk band with a mission. The Baltimore quintet released its self-titled debut album in 2015 and then launched into constant touring to spread their musical messages on rape culture, street harassment, wage gaps, transphobia, and other social issues. In their most recent visit to DC, War on Women rocked the Rock and Roll Hotel on Saturday, Aug. 26.

War on Women consists of Shawna Potter (vocals), Brooks Harlan (guitar), Nancy Hornburg (guitar), Suzanne Werner (bass), and Evan Tanner (drums). (Yes, there are two men in War on Women, the band.)

Listen to the debut album by War on Women on Bandcamp:

War on Women had a busy year, particularly with their participation on this summer’s VANS Warped Tour. The band don’t have any more shows scheduled for the rest of the year, but suggest they will “hibernate and make a new record” with Bridge 9 Records soon.
