Who runs the world? Girls! As a salute to the power of women, Hard Rock Cafe is celebrating International Women’s Month by launching a limited-time, female-inspired “Who Runs the World” menu and an exclusive classic tee. The limited-time menu is available at participating Cafe locations through Sunday, March 8 and features a selection of menu items that are designed to keep rockin’ women strong. Female guests who visit participating Hard Rock Cafe locations on Sunday, March 8 for International Women’s Day will receive a free dessert of their choice, including mouthwatering dessert options such New York Cheesecake, Homemade Apple Cobbler and Hot Fudge Brownie, with a minimum purchase of $10. Hard Rock is also hosting live music events throughout March with female artists at participating Cafe locations to raise funds for She Is The Music, a global nonprofit organization created to help women advance in the music industry.
She Is The Music (SITM) is a nonprofit championing equality, inclusivity and opportunity for women. An independent organization, SITM is working to increase the number of women in music and transforming the gender landscape of the industry.
SITM unites women across the industry, creating strength and impact on a global scale. The nonprofit provides umbrella resources and support for female-focused initiatives – both through its own programs, as well as external efforts around the world. SITM’s core programs include all-female songwriting camps; the largest database of women creators in music; and a forthcoming mentorship program.
A first-of-its-kind collaboration, SITM is powered by representation from across the music industry: creators, publishers, record labels, talent agencies, management companies, industry groups, think tanks, media companies, streaming services, and more. Entertainment Industry Foundation serves as a partner. For more information visit: https://sheisthemusic.org/.
“As a brand that prioritizes equality and devotes itself to its ‘Love All, Serve All’ mantra, Hard Rock is proud to pay tribute to the strength of women with our International Women’s Month celebrations benefiting She Is The Music,” said Stephen K. Judge, President of Cafe Operations for Hard Rock International. “We hope to empower women and girls of all ages to dream big and take pride in who they are. Hard Rock remains committed to honoring the achievements of women not only during International Women’s Week, but every day.”
Since Hard Rock Cafe opened its doors in London in 1971, women have been instrumental to the restaurant’s success and remain at the heart of the Hard Rock family nearly 50 years later. The brand’s commitment to empowering women has been recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of America’s Best Employers for Diversity in 2020, as well as one of America’s Best Employers for Women in 2019 within the travel and leisure category.
