From putting music in the spotlight in all corners of the world to podcast suggestions, EQUAL Hub has become a one-stop destination to empower women in music and discover music from diverse voices of women across the globe. 

There are over 1,400 songs produced by Korean women artists that have been put in the EQUAL Hub feature, and Jisoo’s Flower is the most streamed track to date.
