About this Quote
This quote by Kristin Hersh speaks to the gender inequality that exists in the music market. In spite of her talent and effort, she was often met with resistance from radio stations who refused to play her record since they felt they were already playing too many female artists. This quote highlights the systemic sexism that exists in the music industry, where female artists are frequently overlooked and undervalued. It also speaks with the requirement for more diversity in the music market, and for radio stations to acknowledge the talent of woman artists and give them the same opportunities as their male counterparts. This quote functions as a suggestion that there is still a long method to enter regards to gender equality in the music market, and that we should continue to fight for equal representation and recognition for female artists.
