Celebrate Women's History Month on Twitch

Twitch is a place where creators can build their world and have their voice heard. 

And women are doing that live, every day. 

Building channels. Building communities. Building the future of gaming. And inspiring all of us while doing it. Including the next generation of women streamers. 

So this month, join us in celebrating women creating their own worlds, building their communities, and leading Twitch to the next level. 

Support Women Creators Every Day This Month 

Every day in March we’re raising up women and their communities  on Twitch. From the newest up and coming voices to the trailblazers, check out the front page to see a different featured streamer, starting right now. You can find the full schedule below. Just double check the start time (they’re all in PT), jump into chat, and join their world.

We will also be kicking off activity in the UK, France, Germany, Spain and Italy on International Women’s Day on March 8th with local front page features for women creators. This activity will last all month long. Follow along on our local social media pages in these countries for more details on the schedule and planned events to celebrate.

Everywoman is a two day Twitch event happening March 26-27 curated by Grammy-nominated producer TOKiMONSTA. In celebration of Women’s History Month, Everywoman will showcase performances from leading female figures of dance music, R&B, hip-hop and indie alongside conversations between thought-leaders, journalists, artists and more on the issues facing women in the arts and beyond.

Twitch Women’s Alliance

As we celebrate Women’s History Month, we’re excited to unveil the Twitch Women’s Alliance, a new community to help push forward the visibility and growth of women creators on Twitch. 

Twitch Women’s Alliance has been made possible thanks in part by creators who have voiced concern, offered feedback, and placed trust in Twitch to improve the representation, respect, and resources for all women in our community. We believe the Twitch Women’s Alliance’s mission is imperative to shifting the industry landscape to better welcome and foster diversity and support streamers who identify as women. 

With our ongoing objective to build a global community, we are excited that this new program can serve to uplift and empower all Twitch creators who identify as women and their allies.
