War On Women have premiered their brand new (and very powerful) music video for "Say It" over at Punknews. This track appears on the band's recently released, self-titled debut full-length which tackles issues of institutionalized sexism and patriarchy through an uproarious blend of riot grrrl, thrash and rock with sarcastic dalliances and furious aggression.



Vocalist Shawna Potter commented: "For this video we wanted to highlight the work of The Monument Quilt Project, which is based in our hometown of Baltimore, as well as give local survivors of sexual assault and rape an opportunity to sing along with us, without shame or stigma.

Shooting this video was an incredibly moving experience for everyone in the band. We know that not all victims have the opportunity to speak out about their experiences, or are shamed when they do. For people who are ready to speak out, or need to, we hope this song can be a safe way to say 'I was raped' out loud. You're not alone."

The band also kicked off a string of shows with Government Issue today, taking them to FEST this weekend in Gainesville. See them on tour now and into next year:
