Neither gender has a monopoly on being an asshole. Men have had control for a few millennia.
I'm not saying women wouldn't manage to screw things up in 2,000 years.

Just give us 2,000 years.

There aren't words to do this justice.  Prepare your favorite beverage, block out an hour and embrace the gift that is PJ Harvey.

I know the sort of format you mean: Billy Joel, Chicago, Journey, Elton John, Bob Seger, CCR, etc... When stations like that play a female artist, it's usually Bonnie Tyler, Bonnie Raitt, or a Motown or Atlantic soul performer.

 
Exactly. Stevie Nicks is popular, every once in awhile Joni, Heart, maybe a few others. Motown women like the Supremes and Aretha.

No, they play the "hits" of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The music isn't bad for the most part, I mostly like the songs they play, except that they play Journey and Billy Joel at least 2x/day. Kind of Classic Rock Lite with some 60s Motown thrown in. It could be worse, no Celine thank gods.

Maybe we should do something like they do in Canada...mandate that 40%(I think?!) of music over the airwaves be of Canadian female content?!
No, I don't think so either.

Great initiative... The generalisms make sense on average ;) Uh, which top 100? I think more recently female artists have been somewhat discovered/promoted in various categories... incl. Bjork, Amos, PJ Harvey for some, but also Elastica, Stereolab and many others (see also RP's lib female songwriters). Even in pop people like Madonna etc. have their share... and all the way back to the great ladies of Jazz that have been around... In bands men still seem to be in the majority... And what to make of Abba?

And how about Tori Amos? I have seen a few regular posters post "Ugh! Enough female singers!"

Aside from the Pretenders, hardly any other women get played, although it has improved just slightly.

And women's music gets qualified as "pop" not rock, like women can't rock hard enough to qualify.

I wouldn't want to bore the forum, but if pressed I could write a doctoral style thesis on the horrors of Billy Corgan's voice. Oh and I can't stand Margo Timmons voice either, one's a dude, one's a chick I really don't care. I like some voices and don't like others, the type of reproductive organs the singer possesses is of no concern to me.
