Tag Archives: Women don’t DJ?

Suzy

Sitting here working my female butt off on my PhD thesis about music and culture, this Accentua job advery keeps coming up on Spotify – telling me about this fictional lady who works for them who puts lots into whatever she does, including promoting her husband’s DJ gigs… makes me so mad! Why do they do that, couldn’t they just have her doing her own DJ gigs, as women have been known to do? Or be a gig promoter in her own right? It’s so infuriating, they get it half right, but it’s still through this prism of ‘appropriate’ roles for women and men. I’m sure I will NEVER want to work for Accentua now!
