Guardian Gender Gap Article

Thanks to Dana Jade for pointing out this Guardian blog post about women in the music industry.  The post focuses on the UK, but still seems pertinent.

…the fact is that a survey published at the time showed that, while there are plenty of female artists, the majority of people working behind the scenes are still male (66%). In London, women represent only 30%. Another staggering statistic is that 47% of women in the music industry earn less than £10,000, compared with 35% of men, which may go some way to explain why there are even fewer of them in London, due to the high cost of living.
