It’s been a pretty major year for women in music. Taylor Swift kept reminding us of her year of birth and that she loves New York as she toured the globe and started dating fellow artist Calvin Harris. Adele destroyed sales records with her recent album. Gwen Stefani turned an embarrassing break-up into pop ballad gold. Chvrches Lauren Mayberry stood up for singers like Swift and Beyonc? who some quarters of the internet deem not feminist enough. ?You don’t have to be the Gloria Steinem of pop,? she told the Sunday Times when talking about women judging other women. Perrie Edwards ignored all the haters/Zayn lovers when her relationship with the former One Direction member fell apart to concentrate on Little Mix’s crop of amazing singles. Bj?rk got real in an interview with Pitchfork about how difficult the music industry can be for women: ?I want to support young girls who are in their 20s now and tell them:?You’re not just imagining things. It’s tough. Everything that a guy says once, you have to say five times.?
