Lauren Laverne calls for more female DJs


Lauren Laverne (c) Laverne, DJ, ex-Kenickie singer and all-round entertaining music pundit, has spoken out about sexism in the radio industry.

Laverne says:

Every interview I have done they say: ‘Do you drive your own desk? Do your breasts not get in the way? That’s amazing. Isn’t she good?’

Good on Laverne for speaking out – usually we only hear from dinosaurs like Chris Moyles, so it’s great to see someone as fresh and talented as Laverne calling for more women DJs.

Unfortunately I can’t get Xfm in this area, so I can’t hear her show, but every time I’ve seen her on television she’s been great.
