Are there differences between male artists and female artists? I thought we were all equal with respect to our brain power at best! (I think I’m still in the minority here!)
Now, backtrack a bit. I mean… if you thought there were differences between men and women in the brain or any other major area, this isn’t the place for that. But it is an interesting topic I guess, and I feel as though this idea gets into a number of different different issues with how our society treats certain groups or groups of people…
I am personally a huge fan of gender equality and equality for all, and this is just part of my personal belief system and belief system that I wish would be applied to everyone. In my opinion, men and women should be treated equally; I think this should be taught in all schools and schools should be teaching it.

I think that the bigger reason behind the differences between men and women in some things, is that society and certain media portray women as less than men…and the reason for this, is because of the media itself.
It seems as though there are a lot of people who are aware of the issue of sexism and sexism in the music industry but many of us, I believe, have a tendency to be very critical and say “I don’t like
