women discrimination in the workplace : a look at opera house directors in France - Opera Digital

women discrimination in the workplace : a look at opera house directors in France - Opera Digital | digital technologies in classical music & opera | Scoop.it
According to the Réunion des Operas de France, there are 25 opera houses in France. Many recent surveys has emphasized the strong inequalities between women and men in the cultural industry. Classical music and opera house are alas far from being an exception to this sad fact : 2 female opera directors out of 25. This amounts to a women/men ratio of 8% (!). Can we talk about women discrimination in the workplace in this case ?...
OPERA_DIGITAL's insight:

Still a long road to drive to get women parity everywhere :) !

Great interactive opera performance !
