Quick Reference

Term used in such phrases as feminine cadence and feminine ending to denote relative weakness, e.g. the final chord is reached on a ‘weak’ beat of the bar. Second subjects in sonata‐form are sometimes described as ‘feminine’, meaning gentler than the first subject. This is a hangover from the age when women were regarded as the weaker sex.

Subjects: Music.
