psgsummers:

So, the Reading Festival/ Leeds Festival lineup is pretty devoid of women, again. In fact, only 10 acts have any female members at all.

While many people on the internet are saying things like, “There are, and always have been very few good female bands. FULL STOP,” or, “What do you people want, an apology because women can’t do the low roaring vocal which befits most rock music?” – well, that’s just not true, is it?

Here’s what the festival might look, if it contained solely female musicians, or bands which include female members to disprove the silly muso MRAs out there.
To suggest that it would be ‘impossible,’ or ‘tokenism,’ to create such an event is ludicrous, especially considering the multitude of talented, interesting and varied artists who are touring and playing today.

Hope you enjoy! Feel free to share smile emoticon
