I think this commentary also applies to much of the western conversation around head-covering by Muslim women.

Did you know that after they switched to blind auditions, major symphony orchestras hired women between 30% to 55% more? Before bringing in “blind auditions” with a screen to conceal the the candidate, women in the top 5 major orchestras made up less than 5% of the musicians performing.
Though from what I understand, the screens are actually removed for the final round of auditions. The blind auditions probably help a lot of women get their foot in the door, but it doesn’t entirely eliminate bias.
