DR Documentary Exposes Sexism in Music Industry: Stine Bramsen Testifies

Stine Bramsen’s Testimony in DR’s Documentary on Sexism in the Music Industry. In DR’s latest documentary “Sexism in the music industry,” which has already sparked a heated debate, several female musicians shed light on the shocking conditions in the industry. Among the participants is Stine Bramsen, known from Alphabeat, who speaks out about her personal experiences of a culture marked by boundary-crossing and sexualized behavior throughout her 20-year career. The documentary, with its two-hour-long episodes, illuminates a deeply problematic reality and has already made headlines before its premiere. One of the most striking revelations revolves around Martin Brygmann, who in a lawsuit against DR inadvertently revealed himself as one of the worst examples of inappropriate behavior in the industry. But Brygmann’s case is far from unique, and the documentary shows how even established female artists are still reduced to their appearance and sexuality. Bramsen has experienced throughout her career how female musicians are often placed in stereotypical boxes. She describes how, when Alphabeat broke through, she was suddenly forced into a “feminine” role, even though she had previously felt like one of the boys. One of the most shocking experiences she shares in the documentary is an episode from 2009, where she received an email from Martin Brygmann. He praised her “sexy charm” and suggested they should meet privately to get to know each other, with an implied invitation to stay overnight at his place. For Bramsen, it felt like a transaction where she had to give something in return to sing a duet with him. The incident left such an impression that she discussed it with her bandmates, who also found the situation completely unacceptable. Another unsettling episode described by Bramsen took place during a rehearsal, where she showed up in a tight sequin dress. Comments from a male colleague immediately focused on her appearance, making her extremely uncomfortable and degraded. These stories underline a culture in the music industry where female artists still struggle with sexual harassment and objectification. Bramsen’s testimony is a powerful reminder that even the most successful women in the industry are not immune to sexism. Read also: Annika Aakj√¶r reacts to sexism documentary. Despite the documentary revealing some of the most egregious examples of sexism in the music industry, it also leaves a sense that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Hopefully, Stine Bramsen’s and other courageous women’s candid testimonies can help drive the fight for equality and respect in the music industry forward.
