Liz Phair on Gender Politics

Liz Phair talks to Billboard about the Exile in Guyville reissue, and what’s changed since then:

Fifteen years ago, things seemed a lot more male-dominated, and now you get women busting out everywhere, so that’s good. But the way they are busting out is still very much within the constraints of what men want them to do. Maybe we don’t need to have as much anger as we did back then, but we still need strong women. I see all these young women on porn sites, all these sorority girls posting pictures of themselves giving blowjobs and thinking that it’s empowering, and I feel like they really missed the point.

The re-release of Guyville is due June 24 on ATO.
