As my first infographic showed, there are little women performing on stage. To find out why this is exactly, I did some digging through the ins and outs of the music industry. Turns out, punk may be dead but gender inequality isn’t with the vast majority of the people working in music being male. Moreover, there are hardly any women to find in senior management levels. You know, that place where decisions are made.
So it’s not crazy that there are so few women on stage because it aren’t women who are putting them there. The only jobs where you find a decent representation of women in the music industry are in the communication and pr jobs. Because you know, we’re good with words. And we make mean infographics.
