Femetalism started life as a project for my Foundation Degree in eCommunications back in 2010.  I really enjoyed researching and writing for the blog and so I decided to continue with the project.  I set up Facebook and Twitter accounts and took on the Femetalism persona.

In 2011, we created Femetabase; which I hope will become a ‘go-to resource’ for people interested in learning more about female metal musicians.  It is searchable and readers can add their own favourite artists.

With Femetalism, I hope to provide an overview of the metal music genre from a feminist perspective and positively promote female metal musicians and their bands with equality, respect and relevance.

Femetalism's Contributors

Femetalism is and always will be a small part-time personal project about which I am very passionate. I am therefore the main contributor to the blog and it will be me you speak to on Facebook or Twitter.  I am also a mum and work full-time in addition to the time spent on Femetalism, so I do get some help sometimes! :)

Emma (23inertia)

A technical writer and a graduate of eCommunications with a passion for online communication and social media. I am a mum, a feminist and a metalhead. I tend to prefer gothic, folk and melodic metal and I am interested in how artists mix other genres of music with metal. I am passionate about supporting unsigned and local artists as well as the larger, more prominent bands.  I go to as many gigs and festivals as my budget allows and absolutely love the atmosphere at metal music events.

Craig (doozr)

A programmer, a metalhead, an ale drinker, a photographer and (sometimes) a gentleman. He is particularly fond of melodic death, black and folk metal, or combinations thereof, but is happy to give just about anything a whirl. He provides a lot of the photos for Femetalism, builds and runs the website, and provides the more extreme metal features.
