The 90s were a fun time weren't they? The Teletubbies topped the charts, Robbie Williams was a real thing that people took seriously and Kylie Jenner wasn't born yet. While you were busy watching Mystic Meg and Gladiators though, sexism in the music industry was at a horrible high as detailed by recently returned girlband All Saints in an interview with the BBC.
