Spotify first started the EQUAL initiative in honour of this year's International Women's Day. Since its launch last April, Spotify has been continuously working towards equity for women by showcasing and highlighting female artists and their work with specially curated playlists.

The program is offered in over 50 countries, including the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, and more. There is also an EQUAL Global playlist that features works from EQUAL artists from all over the world.
