The Conference "Woman and Music: an Interdisciplinary Gaze " offered an occasion to present a report, a balance sheet of the women and music studies, as well as some proposals. I consider as dark sides of feminist musicology certain issues that can be also regarded as challenges for prospective studies in the future: the persistence offender discrimination in musical jobs, the discriminatory burden of the women s music label, the geographic coincidence between the musical canon and the women composers' canon and the feminist abuse produced by sociological reductionism. Positive contributions of feminism are of course stronger than its dark sides. They have established a turning point of no return in musicology. I have suggested as avenues of working the interdisciplinary, the imagination and the study of audiences.
