Why Women In The Vienna Phil Matter

The Vienna Philharmonic has admitted its first woman musician as a member. American musicologist explains why it’s important to protest the orchestra until its policies about admitting women improve. “There has never been a more important time for all people to realize that chauvinism is a bottomless pit of hatred, violence and death. Every time we protest violence against human dignity, whether physical or cultural, we help make the world a better and more peaceful place for everyone.”
