other ways to success without having to lay in bed with a man? How would you feel if that was your little sister or mother? Funkeson, Kristina. "The Music industry from the perspective of women." Freemuse 27 May 2005: 1-4. Print. Funkeson the author of this source has done lots of interviews with former female artist that careers ended because of being exploited by males in the music industry. She feels that if there were more women managers and producers in the music industry this would help to decrease the sexual harassment and stop the sex-symbol image given to women in the music industry.

Because she is interviewing actual artist who were in this field this is a primary source. She is getting first hand information from women that have lived in the music industry lifestyle. This is an editorial source because it is from a magazine article edited by the author. The audience is intended to be women who want to enter the music industry and need advice on how not to get exploited sexually by music managers and producers. Just like Peters she talks about how women feel they have to sell themselves when they get signed because the women do not have a lot of options. This article also related to the one written by Jon Dahlager. Both of these articles talk about how women are only seen as sex images in the music industry and that in this day in time sex sells. A bias that needs to be considered is maybe Funkeson is being a little to accommodating to what female have said. I feel maybe she should sit down with a male music producer and see what his take is on the topic. This information is really credible because it is primary sources from women who have lived a life in the music industry. Even thought this article was written in 2005 all of the information it contains is still relevant. Women are still being exploited in the music industry and used for male pleasures. After reading this article I came up with a couple of question: If this is such a big problem why aren’t more people joining the effort to stop this negative image from growing? Why do men feel that sexing these women is ok? If it was their relative would they be singing the same tune? Dahlager, Jon. "Feminism struggles in sexiest music industry." Iowa State Daily [Iowa] 1 Nov. 2000: 1-3. Print In the article by Dahlager he argues that it seems as though women are being brainwashed by sexiest men as to what is cool in the music industry and what is not. Just like Funkeson and Peters he feel there is a lack of strong women in pop music. Dahlager, a student at Iowa State is studying how the music industry affects the society’s perception of beauty and what sells. He opens up with strong statements about how there needs to be more positive women in the music industry. He fails to say who could stand up and what they can do. So his claim has some flaws in it. This is a scholarly source because it was written by a student in a college newspaper. This could ruin his credibility because people could argue that he is a child so what would he know; he doesn’t have the proper education yet to be an expert on this topic.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
