Women and Equalities Committee holds follow-up session on its Misogyny in music report

The Women and Equalities Committee holds a follow-up session on its landmark Misogyny in music report with senior representatives from the Creative Industries Independent Standards Authority (CIISA) and the Office for Students (OfS).

Despite warnings women pursuing careers in music face “endemic” misogyny and discrimination in a sector dominated by self-employment and gendered power imbalances, the Government failed to accept WEC’s wide-ranging recommendations to transform industry protections relating to the Equality Act and non-disclosure agreements (NDAs).

Meeting details

At 2:20pm: Oral evidence
Inquiry Misogyny in music
Interim Chief Executive at CIISA
Deputy Director of Enabling Regulation at Office for Students
Interim Chief Operating Officer at CIISA

During the session, the cross-party committee of MPs examine CIISA’s development and remit as a non-statutory standards watchdog for the creative industries, its sanctions and powers, plus the prevalence of discrimination, harassment and abuse.

CIISA backed the recommendations made in WEC’s report and the Office for Students (OfS) is consulting on new regulatory requirements to tackle sexual misconduct in higher education. The session will also discuss WEC’s July 2023 report Attitudes towards women and girls in educational settings which called for an improved focus on tackling sexual harassment on university campuses.
