'Women in music': A reply to Gordon Graham

British Journal of Aesthetics 41 (1):84-87 (2001)

In his article 'Women in Music' Gordon Graham argues that 'women do not make composers' and 'there is good reason to believe that the composition of music will continue to be an activity largely of men'. In reply Shaw argues there is a deep inconsistency in Graham's argument or a gap which, given Graham's views, he would be hard pressed to fill. Shaw also raises objections to Graham's claim that his view that women cannot compose significant music, if it were true, ought not depress feminists and other defenders of the equal worth of women.
