Nothing screams musical genre like ‘females of all description.’
Despite that the year is 2016, many people—and businesses—think that all “females” are the same. English singer-songwriter Kate Nash bumped into some of this everyday sexism in a record store recently, when she ran across a section of records labeled “females of all description.”
Nash continued to tweet about the sexism, calling out the store for its gendered assumptions.
The majority of people in Nash’s feed supported her, and others called out sexism and racism in their own local record stores.
One commenter tried to defend the store, but Nash quickly shut him down.
Maybe Nash’s tweets will change the way this record store does its labeling; maybe not. But at least she’s drawn attention to the kind of thinking that lumps all women’s efforts together into the “things done by ladypeople with ladyparts” category.
