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

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]
