Women artistes struggle to get recognition in industry: Dua Lipa

Vastavam web: Singer Dua Lipa has opened up about the sexism that persists in music industry and said women artistes struggle to get recognition.In an interview with British GQ for an upcoming issue, Dua said female artists have to work harder for success as compared to their male counterparts.Dua also talked about the importance of the #MeToo movement and said the behaviour to harass women has been long engrained in society.

“I’m lucky in that I haven’t really had any sexual harassment in any way. But I think (#MeToo) is so important. You know, even from school, growing up with kiss chase or whatever, it’s been ingrained in our heads that boys will be boys and its harmless fun and no big deal and to brush things off. Like catcalling.
