Female Singer-Songwriters

“People always talk about ‘female singer-songwriters. They never talk about ‘male singer-songwriters’. So ‘singer-songwriter’ means a man, does it? You have to qualify a woman by pointing out that she’s female, so it’s like not being in the same league as men. It’s so ingrained, people don’t even know they’re being sexist.”
