Misogyny in music


In recent years, news reports and some studies have brought to the forefront the extent to which misogyny exists in the music industry. This inquiry aims to examine what misogynistic attitudes exist in the industry and why. It aims to uncover, in more detail, how these attitudes can filter through to society, impacting attitudes towards and treatment of women and girls, including at live music events. This inquiry will explore what steps can be taken to improve attitudes and treatment of women working in music.                 

This inquiry is part of the committee’s work into Preventing Violence Against Women and Girls.
