TMF: “I Refuse To Believe There’s Only 1 Seat For Women,” Raja Kumari On Gender Parity In Music Industry

March 13, 2023 | by Pragya Dubey

It would not be wrong to say that women need to put in extra effort in any kind of professional field so they are able to make an identity for themselves. Since every professional field is so male-dominated that the place given to women is restricted. The famous American singer Raja Kumari came on the new episode of Hauterrfly’s The Male Feminist and put forth her thoughts on the representation and opportunity of women in her rapping field particularly. From her six years-long experience, Raja Kumari also talked about how men are scared of female energy and to what extent she has seen them going to stop women from being themselves.

The new episode of The Male Feminist had the bold, unapologetic Raja Kumari speak out her unfiltered thoughts on various issues faced by women, especially in the music industry. The Male Feminist host Sidhaarth Aalambayan asked the rapper about her previous statement on men being scared of female energy in professional space. Raja Kumari gave an answer that clearly came from her experience. She talked about the inbuilt patriarchy in India, and how it has also become an easy reason to justify inequality.

Furthermore, Raja Kumar pointed out that that in the industry, only one seat is given to a woman. This has become one of the primary reasons why she tags along more women in all of her projects, added Raja Kumari.

Another serious problem that the rapper pointed out in the mindset of the people was the need to constantly make comparisons. Raja Kumari further explained and backed it up with an example saying that if a woman has a talent, it always becomes a race to make her the next version of “Raja Kumari”. The singer bashed this mentality and said that people should rather let women keep their individuality intact rather than making compete with each other.
