Reading recommendation: ‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz” by Sammy Stein

Gender disparity in the British musical scene is at the core of what motivated our director Millicent Stephenson to create Cafemnee, when back in 2014, she realized how appalling the differences between male and female musicians were both in terms of numbers and opportunities. Ever since, Cafemnee has been one of many efforts by different people across the country to change the situation, and now, thanks to the research and work of Sammy Stein, these are compiled in a book called ‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz – A discussion’.

This book provides a clear vision of the current state of the jazz music scene in terms of gender equality, and we recommend it to understand the circumstances and be able to think of informed solutions to move forward. You can find it in Kindle at Amazon UK or elsewhere at just £2.00 as an eBook, £15 as a paperback.

Sammy Stein also interviewed Millicent as part of the research for her second book, ‘In Their Own Words’, which was scheduled to release at the beginning of the year but was moved due to the pandemic and is set to become available in the next weeks. We will keep you informed about it, if you are interested in finding out more about women in jazz.
