I am doing a research paper on sexism in the music industry. Do you by any chance have any articles that may help me in my task? Thanks.

Thanks for your note. There have been several articles on sexism on the music industry. Most notably by Anne Powers in Spin and in Ms. Magazine. The latter is a great source for other articles as well--especially since it isn't a specific music magazine it can explore those issues without fear of retaliation. I member two articles in particular, one was about how Lilith Fair came into being and the other was about Missy Elliot's new album.

Ann Powers also did a book about women in rock, I believe it was connected to Rolling Stone. Also, the entire Riot Grrrl movement grew out of sexism in the punk music scene, so doing research on them might lead you to something.

I hope that helps.
