    Abstract

    This dissertation investigates the relevance of feminism in today's Popular Music industry and how attitudes towards feminism have progressed. A range of different areas have been considered such as the music press, the industry, sexuality, subversion and the Riot Grrrl movement. In relation to these areas an array of relevant key figures in Popular Music from the both the 20th and the 21st century have been examined and contrasted.
    Though the Riot Grrrl movement helped to set in motion a revolution in terms of feminism and though there has been slight progress since throughout the industry in most areas with regards to sexism and misogyny there is still a significant under-representation of women within the music business and a near invisibility of female artists within the music press. There are also still many issues and disagreements between artists and feminists, about the right way to represent feminism in Popular Music.
