Throughout the history of jazz, women have played a major part in the development and evolution of America’s art form despite facing extreme hardship and discrimination as well as an undeniable lack of advocacy among historians and critics. Often toiling away in the background while their male counterparts reveled in the limelight, women instrumentalists, composers and arrangers were seldom acknowledged for their equally prolific and transformative work, needing to fight twice as hard for acceptance among their male counterparts. In this series we will trace the extraordinary accomplishments of America’s blues and jazz women and highlight the shifting paradigm for women in contemporary society.
