The preface briefly outlines the evolving situation of women in music since 1900, and also explores the development of women in music studies/feminist musicology since the 1980s. The Cambridge Companion to Women in Music since 1900 is situated within this field. An overview of the contents of the volume – which considers women in classical music, women in popular music, women and music technology, and women’s wider work in music (including music education and the music industries) – is provided. The preface concludes with a short section of acknowledgements.
