In 2017, four female students from the Master in Management of Cultural Sector at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) studied the issue of gender discrimination in the cultural and artistic sector in Brussels. The importance of this particular issue quickly became apparent to the students. By comparing their respective professional settings with their academic environment, they observed that while women made up the majority of students in their programme, this was not the case for positions of responsibility in the cultural sector. The students interviewed five women in positions of responsibility in Brussels, asking them to speak on different subjects such as joint management, sexism, machismo, discrimination, work-life balance and particular behaviours they had developed throughout their careers in working with their peers in the cultural sector.
