‘Power has a penis’: Cost reduction, social exchange and sexism in metal – reviewing the work of Sonia Vasan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In this short article I review Sonia Vasan’s contribution to understandings of women’s negotiations of sexism within death metal. Women’s experiences and identities as metal fans has been a growing area of interest amongst metal scholars, and Vasan’s work makes a very useful contribution to this field. Her work on group behaviour from a social psychology perspective brings new insights about how the death metal scene remains fairly static in its male dominance.
