IN THE MUSIC SECTOR IN EUROPE
Professional seminars for gender equality in the music sector in Europe
July 13–15, 2023
Despite the growing global awareness, thanks in large part to the #metoo movement, regarding the violence and discrimination endured by women and gender minorities in the cultural sector, the inequalities therein remain massive and systemic. The disparity in the European music sector is particularly glaring. In France, women represent approximately 14% of artists on stage in pop music, 28% in classical music, and only 6% of conductors  . Women musicians and artists receive significantly fewer rewards and less recognition, publicity, and funding than their male colleagues. A similar situation can be observed in many other European countries.
In 2020, the European Commission adopted the EU Gender Equality Strategy 2020–2025 - endorsed in 2021 by the European Parliament - with precise and comprehensive recommendations that remain to be applied and implemented at all levels. The European Commission has made social inclusion one of the five priorities for structural funding in 2021–2027, and gender equality a cross-cutting criterion, offering the means to take concrete action beyond mere principles and declarations of intent.
