Even though there is a persistent gender gap, the impact of women in audio continues to grow. The achievements of pioneering women in audio go back to the mid-twentieth century. Their accomplishments in the entertainment and academic sectors have helped pave the way for a record number of women in the next generation of women in audio. This paper presents recent contributions as well as discusses the representation of women in audio, the gender gap and challenges women face in this field. Various options, policies, and initiatives are also proposed with the goal towards gender parity. The authors hope to provide a valuable contribution to the research on women in audio, and in particular women's representation in audio engineering, production, and electronic music.
