The International Alliance for Women in Music has posted a call for its "40th Search for New Music by Women Composers Competition", stating this year that "This call is open to IAWM women-identified composers." A series of commissions and prizes therefore that have up until now, I believe, been reserved for women - historically and currently grossly under-represented in the field of music composition - is now open to "women-identified" composers - obviously including biological males.


Men have been stealing women's sports medals, and are now being invited with open arms to appropriate commissions and prizes intended to benefit female composers.
