Where do you think the music industry is at right now in terms of gender equality? For the first time, we’re at a place where gender equality is truly a topic at the forefront of conversation and I think that’s great. While there is still so much inequality in many aspects of the music industry, for the first time in a while I feel hopeful that we could be on the path to changing that, because we’re really beginning to address issues openly, honestly and without fear.
I think movements like the Time’s Up campaign which was born from an incredibly high-profile example of systematic injustice and corruption have given both women and men the courage and foresight to address inequality and sexism at every level. It’s those little, every day sexist quips, terminology, language and attitudes that build a society that allows the systemic inequality that’s been going on for decades.
