Part two of the “Investigating Gender in Music” series has been published on LGR. Part One was published earlier this year and can be read here.

Part one received very positive criticism from researchers and artists word wide, and its reach extended to over 40 countries across 6 continents. Part two investigates gender visibility in the music industry in greater depth with original, data driven research, which specifically explores the gender-media relationship with critical analysis.

Over forty years of gender on music magazine covers, with 8,721 individual categorisations were put under the microscope. A huge volume of data was collected, analysed and categorised. It is conclusive evidence that gender matters on music magazine covers. And it matters in very specific ways.
