Female representation in the music industry has remained bleak as the number ratio of female artists has been known to drop over the years. According to a USC study conducted from 2012 to 2022, women comprised a total 21.6% of all artists, 12.6% of all songwriters, and 2.6% of all producers. Across the nine-year sample, statistics for women of color producers looked especially grim as researchers found a 180:1 ratio of non-white female producers to white male producers.

This National Women’s History Month, we’re tackling those startling gender ratios with action and inciting much-needed industry change with Girls Make Beats.
