You've seen them, you've heard them, they've represented the best and the worst in many forms and incarnations of music, but very few have ascended into the hallowed halls of hard rock.
That's right, women. Where are they? There are some notable exceptions, such as lillix which happen to be more pop, and Kittie, which provide a dose of metal.. but where are the hardrock girls? Ladies in leather and chains are mysteriously absent.

I could very well just be unobservant, but I'd like to hear some thoughts on this.
edit: After doing some research I found quite a few female rock bands, only problem is, they never get to the same fame level as the male bands tend to. .: ponders :.

Why the boy's club? In your opinion?

You pretty much hit the nail on the head there.

We can prove it too.
Look- I'm a man. You're a woman. We both play music. I'm better than you.

..and why do like, 90% of the girls on this site have Xx xX on either side of their name?

Yes, because we are very obviously NOT taking the piss.

There aren't many women in Rock as it is seen as a male dominated genre, much in the same way that engineering lacks teh womenz as it is seen as a male dominated profession.

That's not really an issue though- it's not like he will ever be in a position to have sex with her.

Because hard rock is very testosterone-driven.... almost to the point of being a little bit gay.

D'arcy Wretzky, not leather and chains, but The Smashing Pumpkins were definitely able to fit under the Rock genre; and with songs like Zero and Jellybelly, you could probably fit them under hard rock.

just look outside of angry angry metal . Modern country's a great example.


Gillian welch and david rwalings 'sing that rock and roll'

Alison krauss who got recent fame with whiatsisface fae led zeppelin. Lol, that guy ca't do harmonies so she had to do them all - heh.

David Rawlings has a great guitar style, Welch has a great voice.

So they're immediately identifiable as "special" musicians. They have the handicap of being female.
