"People are more used to seeing men who are masters at an instrument than women. When people say, ‘Oh, she plays like a dude,’ it’s usually dudes who are the ones saying it. They’re saying, ‘Oh, she’s as good as us.’ Of course, that’s a stupid statement. It’s totally stereotypical to say, ‘We have an advantage on this, and if anyone else can do it well, it’s only because they’re like us.’ I think more men are starting to learn that this attitude is totally hollow and based in imagination. As more women are involved in music, this kind of thing gets said less and less."

Esperanza Spalding | singer, jazz bassist, and composer
