What is FemMetal?
FemMetal is a project aiming to create a large network of fans to promote women in the genres of Metal and Rock. FemMetal uses Instagram as a main platform to feature female Rock and Metal artists, as well as this website to post reviews and interviews.
FemMetal is a feminist group. And we see Rock and Metal music a great method to promote Women’s rights through. In fact, women, just by existing in this field that has been associated with men for a long time, performing harsh vocals or over heavy riffs, show that women can be anywhere they wish to be.
