Femdex strives to support female identified DJs and producers. Therefore femdex will examine selected events and analyze their quota (including both balanced or imbalanced).
This is not an attempt to decry certain events, to exclude anyone, to promote a binary gender order or to reduce the complexity of the issue – it is a further step to display the frequent imbalance between female identified and male artists. Femdex solely chose this visual simplified method to achieve a broad public for fostering awareness and visibility.
Watch out for the stamp which will be posted in the discussion section of the examined Facebook event.
For now this method is limited to Viennese nightlife. If you want to use the stamp for your city as well write an email to email@example.com.
