Apparently, the Grammy Awards are contested territory in the battle of the sexes.
So, as part of the political nonsense pushed at the Grammy Awards, the lack of female winners is being treated as a crime of the Patriarch. It seems that, as compensation for male predatory behavior, women were supposed to win more Grammy Awards. Plus, of course, there is a hint that women should always be represented more because of equality or “balance.”
USA Today reports, “Grammys president: Women need to ‘step up’ after men sweep this year’s awards.”
That would be 21-year-old Alessia Cara, who took home best new artist, and spent her time on the red carpet and backstage speaking out in support of the Time’s Up movement, which was founded by Hollywood celebrities and executives earlier this month to combat sexual harassment and assault.
Dozens of artists — Cara included — came to the Grammys wearing white roses, in solidarity with Time’s Up and sexual misconduct victims. But that spirit of female empowerment wasn’t reflected in this year’s winners, nor in remarks made by Recording Academy president Neil Portnow, who suggested that if women wish to collect more golden gramophones moving forward, they need to double down on their efforts.
