This is an account of the history of women in all aspects of the music business. It traces women's progress in the business, their struggles for acceptance as well as recognition and success. From the early years of ragtime and the jazz age, women have been stereotyped and kept in "their place" in an industry which has always been dominated and controlled by men. In order to survive, women have allowed themselves to be manipulated and there have been many casualties along the way. Today, female artists are starting to take control of all aspects of the business and men are being forced to listen. This book contains interviews with singers, musicians and women working in the music industry, and is written from a feminist perspective.
