If it comes as a shock that punk rock has a gender problem, you’re either not paying attention or you’re new here.
There are some great points in this and it raises an important issue that is very close to me. As a female promoter, I am often ignored or cast aside, in favour of my male counterpart. Simply as an attendee of a show, my presence may as well be invisible 99% of the time, and when it comes to engaging in discussions at shows or about music, I may as well not even try. Girls, if you’re into punk/hardcore/whatever, get involved! Go to shows, chat, get involved. It’s 2014 for fuck sake, females are not invisible and, believe it of not, we know shit! Get your head out your ass and let’s get this family back to the inclusive, supportive, indiscriminate community it should be!
Fucking stoked that I’m seeing reactions like this.
