Little Mix hit out at sexism in the music industry after their historic Brit Awards win – as the Spice Girls, All Saints and Sugababes thanked them for the shout-out.
The Confetti singers, made up of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jade Thirlwall, became the first female act to win the best British group at last night’s ceremony.
On the night, they made sure to honour former member Jesy Nelson, while also mentioning the other girl groups that had led the way before them.
Taking to Twitter after celebrating the latest award in their haul, the trio made sure to keep the conversation going around misogyny in the field.
‘It’s not easy being a female in the pop industry, we’ve seen the white male dominance, sexism and lack of diversity,’ a tweet shared on the official Little Mix account read.
‘The fact that this award has never been won by a girl group speaks volumes.
‘All of the incredible, incredible female bands, this one is for you.’
Right on cue, the groups they had named publicly thanked them for the shout-out – while also congratulating the important win.
The official Spice Girls Twitter account posted: ‘Congratulations @LittleMix. Doing it for the Girls!! #BRITs #GirlPower.’
‘YES GIRLS!! Congrats @LittleMix and thanks for the shout out,’ All Saints penned.
As Sugababes added: ‘.@LittleMix, thank you for the incredible speech. You are so deserving of this award and we could not be happier for you @BRITs #BRITs.’
