Abstract and Keywords

The field of music technology has challenges around perception of gender. Here, the compelling question is how to mitigate the inequity. Some of these challenges may dissipate as the number of females persists in the field, creating a pipeline that promotes equitable participation. Other challenges may diminish simply by increasing our awareness of and sensitivity to the issue. Some of the thorniest problems, particularly those around the discrepancy of gendered perception of self and others and discrimination, call for further study. The study presented in this article does nothing more than posit a milestone against which the progress may be benchmarked. Just as feminist and civil rights leaders were called to action in the name of justice, so must music technologists purport a community with a foundation that is built on equity. The final step leads to intervention strategies that advance the community toward the gender ideal.

Keywords: music technology, inequity, discrimination, civil rights, equity
