I think you hit the nail on the head Angel.

Maybe females are not afforded the same opportunities as men are in the music business. It seems that the only way *most* females can compete is to sell out to Hollywood's desire of looking/acting/singing a certain way.

Yes there are some wonderful women groups- but the men do outnumber them.

I'll add to the list Joni Mitchell though.

Hey baby hey baby hey

I think there are alot of powerful female singers/songwriters out there. Unfortunately, sex sells, and people are going to buy a half naked Britney and J. Lo (*double shudder*) before they will buy:

Bonnie Riatt
Joan Osbourne
Etta James
Billie Holiday (Aaaaaaaaaaaangeeeeeeeeeeelll)
Carole King

I've wondered about the lack of all female bands myself. I guess rock bands are still considered male territory. There are also very few bands where there is a mix of female and males. No Doubt, Blondie, and Garbage are all one female plus many males, but Fleetwood Mac had 2 females and 3 males. It would be interesting to see how the interband dynamic is different compared to bands composed of the same gender.

[color=royal blue]That is an excellent point. I guess it's not so much an issue of their existence, it's their prevelance.....how much publicity they're affored o_O Dood that sucks.

Slapnutz-- you have GOT to be kidding about Coldplay O_o
