Gender Inequality In The Creative Arts Report

National Advisory Council on Women and Girls: Monthly Spotlight

This evidence paper provides a snapshot of gender characteristics within the workforce of Scotland’s Creative Industries Growth Sector, to illuminate potential areas of gender inequalities within Scotland’s Creative Arts. It also provides a snapshot of Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) enrolments within courses linked to the Creative Arts, to provide a snapshot of gender characteristics within potential pathways into the sector.

The paper uses existing labour market data from the Annual Population Survey (APS) and Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE). It also draws on HE and FE enrolment data. The focus is primarily on gender characteristics, though some evidence is also provided on areas of intersectionality such as age and ethnicity. Examples of recent evidence on gender inequalities in the creative and arts sector for Scotland and across the UK is also included.
