Committee of MPs: music industry ‘boys club’

A report from a committee of UK MPs says the music industry remains a “boys’ club” where sexual harassment, discrimination and abuse is “endemic”.

The Women and Equalities Committee said musicians have to sit beside sexual abusers at parties and events, due to a “culture of silence”.

It makes a series of recommendations to tackle the problem of misogyny, but also said that a shift in the behaviour of men is needed.

Government said the industry must ensure “a safe working environment”.

The report by the Women and Equalities Committee follows an inquiry into misogyny in the music industry, which began in June 2022.

The cross-party group of MPs concluded that the issue was “endemic” and called for urgent action to tackle it.
