The Song Suffragettes, Nashville’s all-female singer-songwriter collective, has taken on the current hot topic of gender inequality and sexual misconduct against women with a new song written by Lacy Green and Kalie Shorr, aptly-titled “Time’s Up.”

The The 23 voices featured in “Time’s Up” come from all over the U.S. and Canada and all have unique stories and musical directions. Shorr, Tasji Bachman, Chloe Gilligan, Savannah Keyes, Mignon, Gracie Schram, Tiera, Jenna Paulette, Emma White, Jordyn Mallory, Emma Lynn White, Regan Stewart, Kim Paige, Jenna McDaniel, Madison Kozak, Jenny Ray, Tenille Arts, Tristan McIntosh, Tia Scola, Alexis Gomez, Candi Carpenter, Trannie Stevens and Lena Stone all appear on the track.

The track premiered with a video, directed by Todd Cassetty, which have both already been embraced by iTunes and Apple Music, who added it into their top playlist, A-List Country. Radio Disney Country will premiere the song today and feature it on the Radio Disney Country Spotlight show airing on Radio Disney.

“Me and the girls were watching the Golden Globes, drinking wine and wearing all black. During one of the many inspiring speeches that night, I just felt the weight of what was happening — how I was going to tell my daughters and granddaughters about this one day,” said Shorr. “It came together so easily and  flawlessly because the amazing girls of Song Suffragettes were so passionate about the cause and willing to move around their schedules to make it happen. The team behind Song Suffragettes hustled so hard to make this project come to life making our idea a reality. I have been so inspired by this whole reckoning that’s been happening and it just felt so obvious to connect that to what we do at Song Suffragettes.”

Proceeds from the sale of the song will benefit Time’s Up, the organization that created a unified call from women in entertainment to end discrimination, harassment and abuse of women everywhere.
