Thread Name: Is 'Trad music' sexist?
Subject: RE: Is 'Trad music' sexist?
Some of the people here seem slightly confused, my point really concerned the lack of celebration of women in our music
To almost all women that I know, their role in giving birth and nurturing a family are their proudest achievement, it is rarely even noted in passing in traditional music, which seems to be rooted in the heroic( and not so heroic) deeds of men. Perhaps the role of women as protectors of the species was appreciated and taken for granted in the centuries gone? It is certainly not so today's turgid social climate, where "breeders" are universally despised amongst our biting and clawing elites.
