Between 1920 and 1949, 178 women joined ASCAP (the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers); women like Kay Swift, Dorothy Fields, Dana Suesse, and Ann Ronell were among the most influential. Writing the music, the lyrics or both in works such as I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, God Bless the Child, How High the Moon, Willow, Weep For Me, and What A Diff’rence a Day Made, women played an important role in shaping what has become known as The Great American Songbook.
