The Status of Women: Female Gender Associations in West Chester University's School of Music Archive

A Master of Music Thesis
by Katharine Godfrey, WCU class of 2022

Research in the West Chester University School of Music archive displayed a history of women’s involvement in music dating back to its opening in 1871. The archive provided the resources for an examination of the representation of female instrumentalists at WCU in a few key areas over more than a century. As trends of gender stereotyping in music shifted, their effects can be seen on women at WCU.
