wears the trousers magazine


Add to Technorati Favorites

this is the truncated version of what we’re about.
our new website launches November 2009.

what is wears the trousers? A print and online magazine established in May 2005 that doffs a jaunty-angled cap to its US cousins and takes a resolutely Anglocentric peek at the world of women in music. Updated daily, we round up all that is new, essential and exciting about the contribution of women worldwide to the music industry.

so you’re firebreathing man-haters? No. Some of us are men. We’re just bored of the majority of the music press who seem to fail to realise that “credible” music is not naturally a male thing, just actively produced as such in line with some ancient misconception based on the belief that what constitutes a correct or incorrect behaviour for a woman is different to that of a man. We believe that female musicians still go under-represented in the media, and this is our way of celebrating their music.

Hi! I’m an aspiring music writer and I completely agree about women being under-represented in today’s media. I’d love to write some pieces for you! I already contribute to a couple of music websites, here’s my blog if you’d like to have a little look :) http://themusicboxblog.wordpress.com/

Thanks x

Hi. I’m trying to find a link on your site to the CD of the Odetta aldum but can only find the download option. I was given the CD for Xmas and it’s great, but I now want to buy it for someone else. Any clues?
