Singing a different tune: women in Europe's musical culture

To mark this year's International Women's Day on 8 March, the EESC is staging an exhibition entitled Female Notes which pays tribute to Europe's musical women.

The exhibition explores the social identity of female musicians from the sixteenth century to the present day through a series of biographical panels, honouring hundreds of female composers and musicians across Europe while also tracing the evolution of musical culture.

The exhibition is being held in collaboration with Women's Toponymy, an Italian association which was awarded the EESC's 2019 Civil Society Prize for fighting gender disparities by naming places after notable women. (ck)
