The #MeToo movement is a very prominent discussion in the music and Hollywood industries in recent months. Brave men and women coming forward against people who have used their positions of power to their advantage and used it against others in sexual situations. It seems as if more and more stories keep coming out, each drawing strength and support from those that bared their souls first.
Rosie & The Riveters released a song and music video on International Women’s Day, March 8th, in support of the massive movement entitled I Believe You. The powerful song with equally powerful lyrics come from being frustrated and angry at a skewed justice system that seemingly rarely give the victims a sense of closure and comfort.
I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
