Representations of Women in Music Media

Wednesday, March 16
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Austin Convention Center
Room 12AB
531 E 4th St

Female musicians rock. Beyoncé is a feminist, and bands like HAIM, Alabama Shakes, and Pussy Riot have progressed recognition of female musicians in recent years. As more and more female musicians gain awareness, it’s become increasingly important to take a step back and analyze how female musicians are represented in mainstream media and advertising today, what improvements have been made and what challenges we still face as an industry. Hear industry leaders come together to discuss the present and future of representations of women in music media.
