?Spotify Launches New "Equalizer" Tool to Help Boost Female Representation

Nothing says gender equality quite like a swig Smirnf, so naturally the vodka company has teamed up with Spotify for a new project called the Smirnf Equalizer.

The tool allows Spotify users to determine what percentage male and female artists they listen to and then suggests a more balanced selection songs with an “equalized” playlist. If a playlist consisting 50 percent female and non-binary artists isn’t enough for you, you can skew it upwards to 90 percent.

The Equalizer arrives in anticipation International Women’s Day 2018, which arrives tomorrow (March 8), and hopes to make a dent in last year’s staggering lack female representation in streaming stats.

Spotify’s 2017 year-end data revealed that all 10 the 10 most streamed songs 2017 were performed by male artists (other than a featured credit to Selena Gomez on Kygo’s No. 7 track “It Ain’t Me”). All 10 the 10 most-streamed albums were also performed by male artists.
