International Women’s Day 2020: meet the KALAB team

The theme for the 2020 International Women’s Day is #eachforequal. Let’s all take responsibility and challenge gender inequalities!

4 facts about women in entrepreneurship and music:

  • In 2016, for each dollar made by a company owned by a man, a woman’s makes only 47 cents.
  • PRS for Music (royalties and licensing company) reported that the number of women registering with them increased by 60% in 2019. However, this only represents 18.4% of their total members – the industry is still dominated by male songwriters.
  • Comparing the top 10 songwriters by gender; women’s revenues from royalties were 67% lower than men’s, although they had similar levels of popularity.

There is still a lot of progress to be made in the industry – this is why increasing the visibility of female creatives is one of IWD 2020’s main missions, and so is ours, especially as a female-led startup!
