Unconscious biases
We don’t like to talk about it, but it exists. And not only in the music industry. The unconscious bias toward women in any sector is immense, as measured by blatantly obvious pay gaps and other, more hidden signs of misogyny. We talk about this subject and, more importantly, about how to succeed despite it

Music contracts—dos and don’ts
Music contracts are renowned for their unfairness, from outdated clauses that go back to the days of vinyl records to more directly oppressive clauses. Anyone signing a music contract must know these facts. Women must be particularly aware of contractual swindles because everything might look good on the outside, but courts of law will only care about what the contract says

Musical career options
Very many career opportunities exist in the music industry. Many of us wish we had our name in lights but that career path is limited to only a very few, and is often attainable only through a series of lucky coincidences in addition to skill. But many other musical paths also exist, and women need to know all of them so they can make an informed choice about how to work and earn well in the music industry

Round table: The strong women behind the successful men. Unsung heroines of music
What do The Shirelles, The Ronettes, The Marvelettes, Rosie Hamlin, and Helen Shapiro all have in common? They were recently each credited in an article as having a direct and influential impact on the creation and success of The Beatles. And there are many others like them—unsung heroines who both influenced and supported the men who stood in front of the footlights. We pay credit to these incredible women without whom the world would not have the rich musical history it does now
