Confused about the title

Doesn't "female fronted" mean that the singer is a women, cause at least in the case of Ra Ra Riot (which is an awesome bad with two kickass female musicans) the frontman is indeed a man...

Fear of Men!

Fear of Men is not only female fronted, but they also identify as feminist. Oh, and they kicked ass at SXSW!!!
