A shout out to our projects on International Women's Day!

Happy International Women's Day 2021!

Last year, our report A Blueprint for the Future found there were still many gender inequalities in the music industry; women were less likely to be currently earning than men (41% vs 55%), and they were more than twice as likely than men (13% vs 6%) to say they hadn’t had access to any support in order to help them achieve a career in the music industries.

That's why we love to use this day to give a huge thank you to some of our project organisations that work with women and girls and other marginalised genders (not an endless list!). Do have an explore of their work:

Thanks to support from the National Lottery via Arts Council England and players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we’re able to fund around 350 music-making projects for children and young people, particularly for those who wouldn't be able to make music because of who they are, where they live or what they're going through.

Some more detailed project spotlights can be found here.
