Anything changed?

Has anything changed for women musicians since the era covered by the Women’s Liberation Music Archive? Check out this Guardian Comment Is Free article by Anya Pearson and her clever experiment to visually represent the issue of gender inequality in music by editing the posters of ‘some of Britain’s best-loved festivals deleting all the acts with no female members … The results are as striking as they are shocking: blank spaces flood what would otherwise be a crowded list of artists.’ And she provides a link to the archive, as her mother is a member of the much-loved Stepney Sisters. Thank you Anya! If any women musicians, events organisers, technicians etc out there would like to discuss their experiences of life in the music business today, do contact us  wlmmusicarchive@gmail.com
