The station will have a full slate of music and public affairs programming crafted to honor womxn's achievements and advocating for a gender-equal world.   In addition, throughout the month of March KOOP's TeXchromosome Radio takes a look back at Womanifest 2020, the Inaugural KOOP Community Council International Women's Day Celebration. We will check in with the dynamic womxn involved one year after COVID, sharing live music sets and up-close interviews with the participating artists, women's non-profits, and KOOP volunteers that made it all happen. We'll hear conversations about their journey, how their life and work have changed, how COVID has affected their native community or country, and if they have made peace with our current situation.   KOOP (pronounced koh-op) is a community radio station in Austin, TX, and one of the only member-owned and operated stations run in a cooperative structure.
