I am a Music Business student. I love music and I love spreading good music to those around me. There is no greater feeling than hearing something brand new and getting to share it with those whom you know will love it, too. Ironically though, as a female, and as I further my education in the industry, I see a lot of objectification in music videos and lyrically as well for women. This is something I will change. As a future tour manager and music promoter, I will keep my integrity in tact by not keeping quiet about this issue and by staying true to myself and not allowing myself to be overlooked for being a female. Specifically, I will not promote bands that sexualize or objectify women in their music videos or song lyrics, and I will not keep quiet as to why I won’t work with them. Popular bands and artists that do this already are telling women that this what they are good for, and that is it. I know I have what it takes to be successful in this industry, and in anything else I choose. It is my goal and dream for all women to feel the same.
