Hayley Williams has opened up about the state of rock music and says that it's "amazing" to see how the perception of women has changed in the current era. She shared her thoughts during a recent interview with the blog Rock to Sound.

"It's incredible to watch those people really thrive at the same time," Williams said. "There are so many women doing well, making great art and getting recognition, which is fully deserved. I don't like to think I'm responsible for anything other than the songs that Paramore has written, but if these people have drawn any inspiration or belief from what I've done then that's awesome."

"What is even more amazing is that there's now going to be another generation of young women who are looking up to [women]. When I was starting out in a band I had to take parts of my inspiration from males, because there weren't enough women to really go around. I had to look at male musicians that I admired or looked up to and go, 'I think I can do this just as well as they can,' but I had to find my own way of relating to them."
