Singer Rebecca Ferguson tells of music industry abuse in MPs’ report

The singer-songwriter Rebecca Ferguson has spoken about the abuse she suffered at the hands of her former management company as part of a new parliamentary report, which has called racism and misogyny across the industry “endemic”.

Ferguson gave evidence to the women and equalities committee, whose misogyny in music report has on Tuesday recommended the creation of the Creative Industries Independent Standards Authority (CIISA) to protect women from predatory and abusive practices in music.
