Women in the arts have had to fight especially hard for recognition, as in many other walks of life. Two years ago, on the edge of the Negev desert in Israel, a festival in celebration of women composers took place. For many it was an important turning point in their lives.
Tina Pepler asked some of those women how they feel about the festival now. and what they think of the state of women's music in the two years since it took place.
