New York Women Composers, Inc. is a New York not-for-profit corporation controlled by its members, all of whom are women composers of serious concert music or are women in musical occupations who support the composers in their efforts to be recognized. The mission of New York Women Composers, Inc. is the betterment of conditions for all women composers. This in turn depends on the climate of acceptance for women composers in general rather than for a few notables, whose successes are often used to dismiss the claims of other women. The goal of New York Women Composers, Inc. is for music by women to succeed because of merit, regardless of a composers' gender.
