We want to discuss women in relation to music in an upcoming podcast episode, and we need your help.
Update: The Podcast Episode is now up!
It’s a very broad subject, I know. But gender equality in the gaming industry is currently a hot topic, mostly because of the gamergate controversy. But the major music media outlets aren’t currently writing about the female perspective in the music industry, and even with the recent Madonna hatred, Robyn’s girls-only conference and the threats aimed towards Chvrches lead singer, there are news stories being reported, but no features connecting the dots between these events. Is it because it’s not an issue, have we asked the wrong questions or is because we haven’t been able to highlight the real problem? Maybe everything is just fine as it is?
As a female music fan, does gender matter? The bands you listen to, the lyrics you hear, how the artists are being represented. Do you feel gender equality does exist in the music industry in 2015?
