BETTY is a pop music trio whose passion for music and entertainment is matched by our devotion to women’s rights and human rights. We are Alyson Palmer, Elizabeth Ziff and Amy Ziff, harmony-singing songwriter musicians who have toured and played together for almost thirty years. From spoken word to simple a’cappella to roof-raising arena rock shows, in the United States alone, BETTY has performed over 500 concerts to raise money and awareness for women’s rights, gay rights and human rights organizations to help support broad-based agendas for social change.
Over the past decades, that trajectory has serendipitously led us to help design materials and run workshops on such issues as reproductive rights and responsibilities with Planned Parenthood, body image with No More Diets Coalition and self-advocacy with the US Embassy, including on a recent extended tour across India. BETTY has gone from rabble-rousing young rockers to road-experienced wise women while gaining even more enthusiasm for positive social change along the way.
