Thread Name: Is 'Trad music' sexist?
Subject: RE: Is 'Trad music' sexist?
There are plenty of women's songs in the tradition, as well as plenty more in which the woman plays a key role. If there aren't many about childbirth or raising children maybe that's because women chose not to sing about them. Or are we to suppose that only men made folk songs?
