On becoming a ‘woman conductor’ — Sansara

An interesting reflection on gender bias in the world of conducting by Meghan Quinlan:

I never thought about conducting as a gendered profession at all before moving to the UK. It was only after moving here that I saw myself as part of the more rarified category of ‘woman conductor’. This change arose gradually out of the realisation that everyone else was a man and that I was not like them.
