LOS ANGELES, US: Pop singer Taylor Swift said that women artists in the industry must support each other while facing sexism and misogynist attacks.
In 2019, she became the first-ever recipient of Billboard’s Woman of the Decade Award.
”In the last 10 years I have watched as women in this industry are criticized and measured up to each other and picked at for their bodies, their romantic lives, their fashion, or have you ever heard someone say about a male artist?" she said in her speech.
Swift is currently working on re-recording all her albums which are owned by Big Machine Records, 'Taylor Swift,' 'Fearless,' 'Speak Now,' 'Red,' '1989,' and 'Reputation.'
Big Machine Records sold all her songs to Scooter Braun, whom she described as someone who bullied her all her life.
”I’ve leaned on that support and it has kept me in a place where, no matter what, I always wanted to keep making music for them," she said.
She added that female artists, writers, and producers of the next generation should be protected.
