VIDEO – 30 sexist popular songs that are not rap (Part 2)

Posted on

Nowadays, some people still think rap is the most misogynistic and hostile music for women. However, pop, rock or French chanson have been full of sexist lyrics that have gone unnoticed for decades. It seems more urgent to blame sexism on hip hop than to acknowledge that our whole society is sexist and rap is no more no less sexist than any other musical genre. But no one looks eager to criticize the lyrics of icons we grew up listening to…

To set the record straight, Madame Rap compiled for the second time 30 sexist songs that are not rap and that made their mark on the history of international and French popular music, without offending anyone. Get ready for some everyday sexism, abuse of power, rape culture, pedophilia, slut-shaming and harassment.
