Karin Pendle and Melinda Boyd - Women In Music – A Research And Information Guide
Women in Music: an annotated bibliography emerging from more than 25 years of feminist scholarship on music. This book testifies to the great variety of subjects and approaches represented in over two decades of published writings on women, their work, and the important roles that feminist outlooks have played in formerly male-oriented academic scholarship or journalistic musings on women and music.
The only complete and (fairly) up-to-date resource on women’s activities and contributions in the creation and performance of music through the ages, it includes major books, articles and recordings published over the past five decades. The book examines a broad cross-section of contemporary thought from all over the world, with each entry including annotation along with a critical description of content.
