Music, gender representation and the ‘pipeline problem’
Posted on: 19 février 2020, by : Eamonn Forde

The lack of women nominated in some of the key mixed-gender categories at last night’s Brit Awards was a talking point even within the awards itself. Now Vick Bain, the former CEO of songwriters body BASCA (now the Ivors Academy) has published some thoughts on the issue of diversity in music awards ceremonies and festival lineups that are relevant well beyond the UK.
Bain’s argument is that the core problem driving male-heavy nominations and lineups is what she terms the music pipeline, citing her experience researching the historical winners of the Ivor Novello Awards, and finding that only 6% had been women – rising to only 10% since 2010.
