March 25, 2021 – Women In Music: Challenging the Industry To Do Better

TuneCore has partnered with renowned technology and media analysis firm MIDiA Research to provide a deep dive on the disparity between female-identifying and male-identifying artists within the music industry. The study provides an essential look at the perspectives of female-identifying artists, writers and producers, who candidly shared, "the challenges, experiences and ambitions of women making music in the industry today, with an outlook on what is set to change, and what more can be done to remove barriers and support female music makers.” This panel will look at why women make up 50% of the world’s population but only 11% of the music industry’s artist population. TuneCore will utilize MIDiA’s research study findings as a catalyst for transparent conversation to take action steps to shift the dynamic. Distribution and access to DSPs is just one piece of the puzzle. For this panel, we hope to spark a deeper, data-driven conversation about gender inclusivity across the greater music industry.
