'We need more women composers – and it's not about tokenism, it's about talent' - Susanna Eastburn in The Guardian

In The Guardian, Susanna Eastburn, chief executive of Sound and Music, explains why, by 2020, 50 per cent of the composers they work with will identify as women.  She examines the reality of unconscious bias and rejects tokenism in favour of openness and enrichment in our musical experience.  A great article.
