For "sexism in the music industry,"
hmm....I know that Ms.
Magazine has done a few
articles on this, including
some by Evelyn MacDonald who
also wrote a book something
to the effect of "Women in Rock".
A few years ago, I also remember
Sony presenting a panel on sexism
in the music industry. I remember
that the Indigo Girls were on
the panel. Besides that my mind
draws a blank. I also know that
this summer the Indigo Girls
and others organized a tour,
"The Suffragists", which included
all women bands not just women
vocalists. I think it was in
response to women being promoted
as the vocalists, but rarely
as the musicians or the lyricists
and definitely not the executives.
