8 Game-Changing Female Music Producers You Should Know

    From TOKiMONSTA to Crystal Caines

    A recent study by the USC Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism looked at 600 songs that made the Billboard Hot 100 from 2012 to 2017 and found that only 22.4 percent of the artists, 12.3 percent of songwriters, and a measly 2 percent of producers on the list were women. While all of those percentages are shocking—and a sign of how far the music industry has to go when it comes to gender parity—the minuscule percentage of women producers stands out as being particularly awful. Why? Well, because it implies that there aren't a lot of women behind the music; and that those who are there, aren't making quality work. But nothing could be further from the truth. The women are there—they’re just not being recognized for all they do.

    In an attempt to give these influential women visibility, we spoke to a handful of female music producers doing big things. Read all about them, below.
