Music and Women

The Story of Women in Their Relation to Music
Sophie Drinker

Preface by Elizabeth Wood. Afterword by Ruth A. Solie.

Presenting women as central to musical life and its creations, Music and Women surveys women’s musical production in cultures from New Guinea to Siberia, from ancient times to the mid-20th century. Music and Women is a forerunner of much current feminist scholarship and remains the only single source for such extensive cross-cultural information on women’s musical lives.

"A work of great historical significance that will prove useful and informative to students of music and cognate disciplines."

—Barbara L. Hampton, Director, Graduate Program in Ethnomusicology, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, CUNY
