Messages in Women’s Music

Leave a comment

blanch-dcOn June 14, 2016, the United State of Women was convened by the White House and the First Lady. This Summit rallied all of us together to celebrate what we’ve achieved, and how we’re going to take action moving forward. Covering key gender equality issues, we made a powerful difference in our collective future. A live stream of our inspiring speakers, including First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and more, was live from Washington D.C. #STATEOFWOMEN

I move that women in music be discussed for two reasons:

1) women musicians earn 12% of the $27.5 Billion earned in the Music Business;

2) women musicians earn 64 cents to the dollar that male musicians earn, while women in other fields earn 78 cents.

There is power in the messages in women’s music and it is not tapped into, appropriately. Music changes the world on so many levels. When women’s music is not played on the airwaves, programmed at main events like operas, symphonies, and large festivals, the entirety of mankind suffers. Rather than music that accompanies films that portray murder and mayhem, women’s music can change the fabric of the culture of humankind.
