The singer, who joined Fleetwood Mac in 1975, said she and fellow bandmate, Christine McVie, did not experience much sexual harassment over the course of their meteoric careers.
"I think I've been very lucky," she said. "And maybe it's because when I joined Fleetwood Mac, Christine and I made a pact. We said we will never ever be treated like a second class citizen amongst our peers as we get more famous and more famous -- and if we're in a room with famous rock n' roll stars that are men and they treat us that way, we will scream at them and then we'll walk out."
"We've been a force of nature our entire career, so nobody has dared to step over that line to Christine McVie and Stevie Nicks," she continued. "I'm such a raging monster when I'm angry that it would have never worked, so I'm really glad I never had to run into that."
As for the ongoing conversations about pay disparities between men and women in entertainment and across industries, Nicks said she's in full support of those calling for pay equity.
"Fleetwood Mac has two women and we all get paid the same," She said. "And if we didn't, Christine and I would be walking out the door."

They also happened to be married to other members of the band at the time.
Christine was married to John McVie, but no after about 1977. Stevie Nicks has never been married.
Nicks married the widower of her best fried in 1983.
Everyone around them was too stoned to get too aggressive.
Stevie beat the harassment problem by sleeping with almost every male she encountered.
Would love to see little Stevie kickin some chauvinists ass up under his hat!
One of Delta-21’s all time favorite female rock stars!
Go Stevie !!
Much more easy going generation back then, you gotta admit.
Stop draggin my car around!
I don’t know if this is related but when I was last in Maui, we went to the Mick Fleetwood restaurant in Lahaina and it was pretty amazing. Not just the food and cocktails but the whole atmosphere was so unique. Lots of photos of the band on the walls including the two girls, Christie and Stevie. They had a bar and some tables up on the roof as well.
Maybe. There's two sides to every story.
If ever a man loved her, it was him.
Everyone else left her.
That’s just my take though.
Christine McVie was married to John McVie in 1968 but they divorced in 1976.
Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham were a couple but were never married.
Stevie Nicks was married, briefly to Kim Anderson, the widower of her best friend and backup singer Robin Anderson. They married in 1983 soon after Robin Anderson died of leukemia. “I was determined to take care of [Robin’s] baby, so I said to Kim, ‘I don’t know, I guess we should just get married.” Nicks and Anderson divorced after only a few months: “We didn’t get married because we were in love, we got married because we were grieving and it was the only way that we could feel like we were doing anything.
They loved to rock!
Yes he could. But.
He beat her
