Last day, the Swedish state channel SVT published the Melodifestivalen 2021 rules to be held in 2021. While there were no rule changes for the next year, he shared the news of a new rule that will be effective from 2022. According to the new rule, a step was taken to eliminate the gender gap between women and men.
According to this rule, in all 28 songs that will take place in the organization, at least one of the songwriters or composers will be able to participate in the contest, provided that they are women. In the current rule, at least one of 28 composers or at least one of the composers or songwriters could take part in the competition, provided that they were women.
We will see together how this rule will have consequences in the coming years.
