Why are only male composers featured on the classical music browse channel?

Why has Spotify chosen only male composers on the browse classical page? All the featured composers are male, the classical new releases are male, and the composer weekly is male. Is it really hard to even include one female composer?

There are no good women composers. If there was spotify would notice them and put them on the playlist

Hi @sabatronn, welcome to the community

although there are many more male than female composers (in the world and on Spotify) luckily there are  Spotify Weekly Composer lists with female composers

after a quick look I found:

Hildegard #069

Germaine Tailleferre #140

Cécile Chaminade #047

Puline Oliveros #073

Amy Beach #096

Jennifer Higdon #071

Sofia Gubaidulina #070

and I'll have missed possibly some others...

Happy listening!

Hi @sabatronn again and hi to anyone in search of female classical composers,

when I was searching in the area of classical Spotify playlists I stumbled upon this one: a collection of women composers of classical music, nice overview!

happy listening (and just click on the composers names in this list to find way more music)
