The Keychange initiative is the drive, led by PRS Foundation in the UK, to get the music industry and politicians alike to think more about gender-parity issues.

Today, the organisation is presenting its ‘manifesto for change’ to the European Parliament, based on its research into the gender gap within the music industry, and suggestions for how to fix it from 60 women artists and industry figures, as well as seven festivals.

You can read the manifesto in full here: it gathers recommendations in four categories. They include: working conditions and the lack of senior role models for women; more investment in targeted programs “which empower underrepresented artists and industry professionals”; more independent research into the music industry’s current gender gap; and educational activities including promoting role models and music-careers in schools to tackle gender stereotypes.
