With Apple rewarded at the Victoires de la Musique in a premier category, here is the #Metoo movement, emerging in the music industry, now connected to an amp.
By receiving her award as a female artist (second Victory of her young career at 24 years after the revelation album last year), the singer wished at the microphone on Friday evening a “safer (music) industry for women “, hoping that they can “reverse the codes” middle.
The day before the Victories, Pomme had described his “arrival in the music industry” as “traumatic “ in an open letter published by Mediapart. “From my 15 to my 17 years, I was manipulated, harassed morally and sexually, without being aware of it at that time of course”, she confided.
Here is a new echo given to the #MusicToo movement, which appeared with the account of the same name during the summer of 2020 on Instagram. A tool that has collected nearly 300 testimonies from victims of harassment or sexual assault, according to its count. Material intended to be publicized so that “fear changes sides”, insist its officials.
The existence of #MusicToo took in September 2020 another relief with cases of sexual assault – without the platform having a role to play – concerning Moha La Squale (targeted by an investigation opened after several complaints), Romeo Elvis (who apologized on social networks after accusations of sexual assault on the internet) and Chloé Briot, singer who filed a complaint.
More generally, there is a beginning of awareness. The Because label has thus cleaned up itself. A manager is dismissed for serious misconduct and another manager receives a warning after an internal investigation establishing a “sexualized atmosphere“marked “by words that are unacceptable and amount to humiliation and sexism to racism and homophobia”, according to a press release from employees on social networks.
And prominent artists take turns speaking. Christine and the Queens wrote on her Instagram account in the fall: “Each of us has experienced a more or less tenuous form of harassment, sexist remarks, like all our sisters who walk in offices, who come home late at night, who are from trades radically different from ours “.
The statistics are cold in the back: “31% of women working in the music sector (artists or professionals) say they have been victims, at least once, of sexual harassment”, according to a 2019 study by Cura (Collective for the health of artists and music professionals) and Gam (Guild of music artists).
I hope you are in health and well.
