Abstract [en]

This paper examines women's positions in the music industry. By quantitatively

investigate ten major companies on the swedish music market, the authors have been

able to mapp positions that are dominated by women and as well as men. The essay

discusses several theories of both gender in organizations and gender in society in

order to analyze the quantitative results.

The aim of the paper is to highlight the current segregation of careers in the music

industry as well as to lay a foundation for further research on why it is segregated.

Clear graphs shows the gender distribution between women and men in business but

also the distribution of gender in occupations / positions in similar companies. In the

analysis the authors reflects on the results using relevant gender theories. In the

conclusion, the authors explain the result generated by the analysis and illustrates the

prevailing segregation that exists in the music industry.

This paper has concluded that a seemingly even distribution between men and

women in business organisations can sometimes be misleading. The majority of the

companies studied had an equal gender distrubution but at the same time gender

segregated.  The authors saw signs that certain professions and positions were

gender-marked by an over-representation of a particular sex.

The essay provides a basis for further research on the topic.

Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats undersöker kvinnors positioner inom musikbranschen. Genom att

kvantitativt undersöka tio stora aktörer på marknaden har författarna kartlagt vilka

positioner som domineras av så väl kvinnor och män. Uppsatsen tar upp flera teorier

om kön i organisationer samt i samhället för att kunna analysera de kvantitativa

resultaten.

Syftet med uppsatsen är att belysa den rådande segregationen av yrken i

musikbranschen samt att lägga en grund till fortsatt forskning kring varför det ser ut

som det gör. Tydliga diagram visar könsfördelning mellan kvinnor och män i

företagen men även könsfördelningen mellan yrken/positioner inom liknande företag.

I analysen reflekterar författarna över resultaten med hjälp av relevanta teorier. I

slutsatsen förklarar författarna de resultat som har uppkommit genom analysen och

belyser den rådande segregation som finns inom musikbranschen.

Denna uppsats har kommit fram till att en till synes jämn fördelning mellan kvinnor

och män inom företag kan ibland vara missvisande. Majoriteten av de studerade

företagen hade en jämn könsfördelning men att inom företagen fanns segregering

mellan könen. Författarna såg även tecken på att vissa yrken samt positioner var

könsmärkta genom en över representation av ett visst kön. Uppsatsen ger en grund

för fortsatt forskning i ämnet
