Wears The Trousers magazine

// 9 December 2008

While at Ladyfest Manchester I met the lovely Charlotte Richardson who was busy interviewing bands for Wears The Trousers magazine. The online version has now been duly bookmarked in an effort to improve my woeful knowledge of lady centred music. From the website:

what the FAQ is wears the trousers? an online magazine that doffs a jaunty-angled cap to its US cousins and takes a resolutely anglocentric peek at the world of women in music. a round-up of all that is new, essential and exciting about the contribution of women worldwide to the music industry…

so you’re firebreathing man-haters? no. we’re just sick of the majority of the music press who seem to fail to realise that rock/”credible” music is not naturally a male thing, but it is actively produced as such in line with some ancient misconception that proliferates the belief that what’s a correct or incorrect behaviour for a woman is different to that of a man. we believe that female artists go under-represented in the media. this is our way of celebrating their music…

The magazine features music news, reviews, interviews and features, and the team are always interested in hearing from budding music writers, so message them if you want to get involved!
