The Future of Music Is Not Male by Laura Snaps: How We Get To Next 

The music industry is rapidly changing its tune, no pun intended. Technology has allowed women access to tools often relegated for professional studios that more often than not remained, and remain, an all-boys club. Laura Snaps at How We Get To Next wrote this article this week and it is highly recommended for any musician, but especially for those aspiring female musicians, audio engineers, composers, and creators of music that may feel that they are alone in the biz.

Women are demanding respect, autonomy, and credit in an industry that has long rebuffed them

If you are interested in getting involved with advocacy and women in music, please check out the following organizations:

Female Pressure


female pressure is an international network of female artists in the fields of electronic music and digital arts: from musicians, composers and DJs to visual artists, cultural workers and researchers. A worldwide resource of female talent that can be searched after criteria like location, profession, style or name. "Why are there so few women active in the electronic music scene?" - each one of us has heard this question a thousand times... Here is the answer: It's not our number, it's about how and if we are recognized!


female:pressure intends to strengthen networking, communication and representation - a standard instrument to obtain information about artists, contact them, and find out about other, maybe less known women in electronic music all around the globe. Every artist listed in this database is able to keep her personal entry up-to-date. The network comprises around 1450 members from 65 countries as at April 2015. If you want to be part of female:pressure don't hesitate to send an e-mail to: .

The International Alliance for Women in Music builds awareness of women’s contributions to musical life through its publications, website, international competitions, conferences, concert promotion, and presentation, and through its support of entrepreneurial and publishing activities, scholarly research and publications, broadcasts, educational initiatives, and advocacy work.
