(Premium content) Premium content

Why are women arts administrators and dance teachers while men dominate theatres and senior management?

A superficial look at the statistics for gender balance in employment suggests the arts industry is healthier than most. While manufacturing is 74% male and health care is 78% female the arts and recreational sector has a much healthier balance: 53% male to 47% female. We have to be happy with that.
