Gender Pay Gap in the Arts

December 2, 2008 § Leave a comment

In a report released by the National Endowment for the Arts, women artists suffer from the same gender pay gap as women in other fields.  What I find most interesting is that the gap is larger in the culture centers of Los Angeles and New York, generally considered to be progressive cities on social issues.  It may be that smaller cities, with only a handful of arts organizations, and given the prevalence of union contracts, offer fair pay.  Freelancers then, and those working outside of union contracts may be the victims of this pay discrimination.
