Courtney Love Criticizes Rock Hall’s “Sexist Gatekeeping” in Guardian Op-Ed

For the past week, Courtney Love has been critical of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, posting on Twitter and Instagram about the disparity between male and female inductees. She’s now capped it off with an op-ed for The Guardian, asking, “Why are women so marginalised by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame?”

In the article, Love notes that the vast majority of musicians in the Rock Hall are men, and also bemoans the absence of female music icons—namely, Big Mama Thornton, Chaka Khan, and Kate Bush—from the institution. “The Rock Hall’s canon-making doesn’t just reek of sexist gatekeeping, but also purposeful ignorance and hostility,” she writes.
