"As far as bands go, the more women in the music business the better. When I started, there were no females, and the other sex didn’t want to play with me. We’re still at the point where every female vocalist has to be compared to Madonna or Gwen Stefani, simply because they are the only females on the rock charts. So I still feel like there’s a lot to prove, and I’m hoping on getting that changed around. Having it so someday gender isn’t that important in rock & roll is something that’s very important to me."
