Book 33 Female Multi-media artist: [Gaynor]

The music industry is the last bastion of institutionalized sexist & ageist behavior in western society. The rock & roll myth & legends created by men for men have created a paradigm that has systematically excluded women from our modern, musical memory. Leaving only the business bitches & whores or angelic manipulated virgins to create the female side of our collective, modern recent musical heritage.

Take a look around you here at WOMAD & count how many women musicians are actually on the stages with an instrument? Yes not singers or dancers but actual female musicians, on stage playing an instrument?
