Laura Klein
Although it continues to be a male dominated field, women in jazz have long contributed as composers, songwriters, and bandleaders. While Ella, Sarah, Billie, Anita, and Carmen became so famous as singers they only needed their first names to be immediately identified; women have not achived that same level of recognition for their contribution as composers. Women, like Mary Lou Williams, Dorothy Fields, and Irene Higgenbotham. Lil Hardin Armstrong was more famous for her marriage to the great Louis Armstrong that her achievements as a jazz songwriter.
