The Women and Equalities Committee is investigating misogyny in music.
THANK YOU 👉
Thank you for for completing our survey! This was an important chance to bring the issues we face everyday in the industry to the attention of policy makers.
Cactus City Studio CIC has collected your answers to our survey and used the data to make a submission which will address the following questions asked by the committee
The House of Commons Women and Equalities Select Committee has outlined various topics they aim to undertake, which include:
What correlation exists, if any, between misogynistic lyrics and violence against women and girls?
What types of support exists for women experiencing sexism or misogyny in the music industry? How can they report problems or abuse?
How safe do women and girls feel at live music concerts and festivals?
What expectations are there on women working in the music industry compared to men?
What steps should the Government and other industry bodies take to tackle misogynistic and sexist attitudes towards women in music?
