Background

The UK government has rejected findings from the Misogyny In Music report published in January, much to the disappointment of music industry figures. The report was a result of an inquiry conducted by the Women And Equalities Committee (WEC) earlier this year. It focused on misogynistic attitudes in the music industry and its broader societal impact.

Findings and Recommendations

The report highlighted the underrepresentation of women in key roles in the industry, prevalent sexual harassment and abuse, and the use of non-disclosure agreements (NDAs) to silence victims. The committee recommended urgent actions to address gender imbalances and protect workers from harassment. It called for new protections for freelance workers, industry investments to promote diversity, and a moratorium on NDAs.
