So if you’re on twitter you’ve most likely seen one of my tweets circulating, a few weeks back I released the blog post where I edited the men out of festival lineups to visually show the lack of female representation. The post went down great I had so many positive responses so very much like I’ve done with all the other festivals when the Reading and Leeds lineup was announced yesterday I hopped onto photoshop. I then tweeted it out and was not expecting the response I’ve had, there have been so many supportive comments but the negative ones have really surprised me. I don’t know if maybe people were missing the point and not realised what I do and how I’ve been championing females in the music industry for years or just that they don’t like women having a voice, who knows.

Aside from the ‘Slag’ ‘Slut’ ‘Whore ‘Cunt’ ‘Bitch’ comments, I got a lot of ‘Well if they made good music they’d be up there’ firstly if that’s the case why the fuck is Gerry Cinnamon up there, anyway I digress. The second being ‘Come on then tell us what women are good enough to be on the lineup’. I could respond to the ignorant comments all day but instead, here’s a list of women who should be all over the lineups.
