The F-List website has launched. Any UK musician, songwriter or composer can join if they are female*. It includes any genre and DJ/producers. If you are not female, but know of a female artist who may benefit, do tell them about it. If you book artists, it is easy to search the directory.
The F-List is the first directory of its kind to feature female musicians, songwriters, composers, and bands, all in one place. It has been set up as a not- for-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) and is also developing a range of initiatives to dismantle the structural inequalities and ensure that a 50/50 gender split becomes the norm across every festival and event in the UK. It is committed to challenging a number of barriers that prevent women from progressing and thriving in the music industry – from the gender pay gap to sexism and harassment, and the motherhood penalty.
*The F-List notes that it is proud to be trans and gender minority inclusive.
