episode of our video series.
Our July Feminist Issue focused on the
ways that women still experience the dance
world differently, from
being snubbed by subtle
discrimination in the studio
to being overlooked
for artistic or leadership
opportunities. Our readers
shared how they’ve seen
and experienced sexism:
“Universities accepting all
male dancers who audition,
regardless of talent.” —Katy
“Starting late as a female, no one supports you
as they support men. A 16-year-old girl starting
dance is treated so differently. I
started dance at that age. I felt
pitied, as if I annoyed my peers
or was amusing. A 16-year-
old boy gets all the attention,
everyone wants to help them
and we beg them to stay. Men
are almost expected to start
late.” —Ana Sofia (@sofia.

the boys didn’t.” —Emelie
