ABSTRACT
The essay presents an exploration into the changes in the placement of women within the canon of Western classical music since 1993 and the advent of third-wave feminism on musicology, advocating the reintroduction of historical women into the mainstream academic and performing musical culture. The placement of social history, the distinctions between repertorial and academic canons, and the physical dissemination of music are each discussed relating to the inclusion of women composers.
