Meet the women of Pretty In Punk, from our directors to our artists! Giving young women and the LGBTQ2+ Community in Saskatoon the opportunity to get involved in the music industry in a safe, hands-on manner that builds on their personal career goals and skills.
“Through interviews with 75 female songwriters and producers, the study explores the lived experiences of women in music. More than 40 percent stated that their work or skills were dismissed or discounted by colleagues, and 39 percent said that stereotyping and sexualization were impediments to their careers. Finally, more than one-third said that the industry was male-dominated—a belief borne out by the numbers in the quantitative report. Women also cited instances in which they had been doubted or questioned and illuminated how the recording studio is a site for objectification and place where personal safety is a concern.” - University of Southern California
