When women join forces amazing things can happen. It’s all about networking and reaching out to each other. Rusa along with local artist and producer JCherry have teamed up to make this year’s International Women’s Day a special event. JCherry is the producer of, VOICE of the CITY a popular radio show airing on WESU 88.1FM, The Middletown Music Festival, JCherryPresents.com, and manages her band, JCherry & The Strawberries. They released their first album, "In The Belly Of The Beast" last spring. “ I am a writer, broadcaster, artist, and mother. I work in music and broadcasting. Historically men have dominated the music and broadcasting industry. Things have changed over the last few decades. But there is still a lot of inequality in pay and the treatment of women. We need to progress further. I want my daughters to have a level playing field where gender doesn’t matter, only your skills and talents do,” explained JCherry.
