Music Week's Women In Music Roll Of Honour in association with TikTok, was established in 2014 and now has over 100 members. It aims to highlight the breadth, depth and variety of individuals who are ‘game changers’ in the music industry, with one common theme; they are either women or female-identifying, or their activities consistently benefit women, or focus on female empowerment/gender disparity.
