- Campaigners shared names and images of women composers they would like to hear more of in the future. This is an excellent resource for those seeking to commission new work, programme new music, or educate and inform others.
- The women composers highlighted here are diverse in terms of age, race, ethnicity, as well as in terms of their music.
