Speaking to ‘The Mirror‘, Ora shared:
I think people take the word feminist really seriously and I think people are scared to use that word. In this industry, all the heads of labels are men, but every artist has to prove themselves, regardless of their sex. I have always been very vocal about the women sticking together. Without pulling the whole female card, I think it has always been harder for females in all respects. Whenever we have an opinion it always seems to be taken out of proportion. As a woman in this industry, it has always been a bit about proving yourself.
