The Guardian Responds To The Lack Of Women In DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs

    Here’s your Wednesday morning sexism. Following DJ Mag’s eyebrow-raising omission of any women in their annual 100 DJs, Hanna Hanra (a DJ herself) penned a feature over at The Guardian about a secret bias that apparently hangs over the community.

    “I’ve had male DJs reach over as I mixed two tracks and start twiddling with the knobs. Or come and stand behind me and instruct me on what to do. My personal favourite was when, at a regular Sunday nightclub, the male DJ who played after me reached over the sound desk and start to change the speed of a track for me.”

    Ouch, it may be silly to rant about something as arbitrary as gender-exclusivity in a magazine top-100 list, but she illuminates some damaging topics – basically mistreatment in the workplace, if the workplace was Fabric.  Read the whole thing over here. [DS]
