Amy Lee posts Empowering Statement Addressing “The Lack of Women in the Mainstream Rock World”

Evanescence’s Amy Lee has posted a thoughtful statement after being asked in an interview about “the lack of women historically on rock radio and in the mainstream rock world”.

After being asked in a recent interview about “the lack of women historically on rock radio and in the mainstream rock world”, Evanescence’s Amy Lee has posted a statement addressing the truth of that question, as well as empowering those who are “changing the game” in the genre.

Amy took to Facebook to admit that she “couldn’t think of anything good to say in the moment” when she was initially asked about women in rock, but that she since “thought about it for a long time after”, writing down her reflections based on over 20 years in music.

“Honestly, women do get skipped over,” she begins. “We do get left out of the recap when it all boils down. It is harder to make it onto the cover or the radio. Because our face is not the classic, quintessential face of rock… if you’re thinking of it as a literal face. I think it’s embedded subconsciously in our brains that women in rock are less authentic somehow, like we’re next gen. We’re part 2. Not the original. A niche little off-brand thing.”
