Messages in Women’s Music

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.

Ratify Equal Rights Amendment

Are women in the South just stupid?

WHY has the Equal Rights Amendment not been ratified in these 12 Southern states and 3 Western states?

Somebody please explain this to me. Can women in the South read?

Are they conscious or are they just stupid?

Wake up Southern and Western women. YOU are holding us all back.

Can women’s music heal?

Since 1997, I have been a proponent of women musicians, particularly, composers.  My radio show MUSICWOMAN has featured over 200 women composers.  My organization WOMEN IN JAZZ SOUTH FLORIDA, INC.  is a global non-profit organization of women musicians and other women and men who support them. We have 247 members, 125 musicians, 49 male members. Our members are from around the USA, Italy, Holland, Sweden, Germany, Australia, Brazil, Angola and India.

In August 2013, I published the first issue of MUSICWOMAN MAGAZINE to feature women musicians in a print format. We are seeking advertisement to fund the printed edition.

My paper Conscious Inclusion of Women Musicians was published and presented in Romania in December 2012.

In July 2013, I was one of 40 women composers at the 3rd WIMUST Conference in Fiuggi, Italy, where the agenda was dominated by discussion about the inequity of earning opportunities for women musicians.

In January 2014, we will release our 4th compilation CD of women’s music.

Overall, I believe that the messages in women’s music are not being heard by society-at-large, which accounts for the high amount of violence and competition in the world.
