Paper Late: Sexism in prog

A Prog reader questions sexism in the world of progressive music, and asks why women should still have to put up with it in the 21st century.

The usual caricature of the progressive rock audience in the UK is that it’s male, and, as one female singer said in the very first issue of Prog, probably bearded with a liking for real ale and steam trains. However, it’s pleasing to note that in the last few years, progressive rock has become a lot more diverse, with more and more women on the scene. They’re not only in the audience either, but also making music too. The whole scene can only be healthier as a result.
