There was a moment in the '90s when women dominated all: There was Fiona, there was Liz, there was Alanis. Morissette's standout release, Jagged Little Pill, performed as much more than an album, it illustrated exactly how and why the female voice is so important. As Stereogum writer Caitlin White begins her anniversary piece, "Society taught me that a woman should be quiet...Alanis Morissette taught me to be loud, and that my anger was righteous."
Pop music is good when it's memorable, it's excellent when it ushers in a new understanding, acceptance, and influences the culture that inspired it. For the 20-year anniversary of Jagged Little Pill, we asked other female artists about the album and its legacy.
