Formatted abstract Very little music by Australian female composers is regularly performed, however, throughout recent history, music, on the whole, has been regarded as a feminine pursuit. Even today many more females than males study music. Despite this, in professional spheres music has been, and often still is, a male-dominated profession. This phenomenon has been particularly prominent in composition, a field in which the acceptance of women arrived relatively late. A similar late acceptance of Australian music by both the concert-going public and critics alike has contributed to the creation of a double disadvantage for Australian female composers. In this critical commentary the impact of these factors on clarinet music and its performance will be examined, taking into account both current and historical factors, in an effort to discern why works for clarinet by Australian women composers are relatively infrequently performed and what is required to reverse this trend.
