Two thousand musicians allege abuse

In the wake of allegations made by lawyers and actors, and the #metoo campaign, 1,993 female musicians have published an article detailing alleged sexual abuse and sexism.

The allegations, published in Dagens Nyheter, describe extensive abuse, sexual harassment, and sexist language throughout the Swedish music industry.

The victims include musicians, composers, established stars, music students, employees, and trainees. Zara Larsson, First Aid Kit, and Robyn are among those alleging abuse.

Earlier this week, 4,445 female lawyers reported sexual harassment in the workplace.

To date, the #metoo campaign in Sweden has seen women in media, film, theatre, and opera share experiences of sexual harassment by colleagues and bosses.
