It’s goes along with the issue of equal pay for equal work. Women artists often work three times as hard to earn half as much in an industry that is often undervalued in our society, making it tough on anyone to survive. More attention should be placed on valuing our nation’s artists, particularly women, more highly.
Jan LederDOBBS FERRY, NY – I’m a jazz instrumentalist and have felt and lived this discrimination for 35 years. Women have such higher numbers in other professions and ours needs to change.
Ellen SeelingPINOLE, CA – This is important to address all the issues mentioned as facts in this petition. I’m REALLY tired of getting ripped off and seeing all my women friends get ripped off by sending out tax dollars to pay men for jobs from which women are excluded. This has got to end!
