In 2023, we are still a long way from gender parity in the music industry, with women accounting for just a fraction of the creative roles historically occupied by their male counterparts. In the spirit of change, Apple Music is celebrating Women’s History Month this year by honoring the women behind the songs—shining a light on the often unheralded songwriters, engineers, session musicians, and producers who, in blazing a trail and holding their ground, have shaped music we know and love. Explore their work and so much more through a special collection of playlists and radio episodes.
