Abstract:
A celebration of the evolution, influence, and power of women in popular music. From Bessie Smith to Taylor Swift, women have played an essential and undeniable role in the evolution of modern music including blues, rock and roll, country, folk, glam rock, punk, and hip hop. In a world once traditionally dominated by male artists, women have a stronger influence on music than ever before, yet remain woefully under-represented and unappreciated in the musical canon. This book is a tribute to the female artists who have always defined and continue to make indelible contributions to popular music. -- adapted from jacket.

"An unprecedented celebration of the evolution, influence, and power of women in popular music. From Bessie Smith to The Supremes, Joan Baez, Madonna, Selena, Beyoncé, Amy Winehouse, Dolly Parton, Sleater-Kinney, Taylor Swift, and scores more, women have played an essential and undeniable role in the evolution of modern music including blues, rock and roll, country, folk, glam rock, punk, and hip hop. Today, in a world once traditionally dominated by male artists, women have a stronger influence on music than ever before. Yet they remain woefully under-represented and unappreciated in the musical canon as compared to their male colleagues. Women Who Rock is a full-throated tribute to the female artists who have always defined and continue to make indelible contributions to popular music. It's a book about women, and by women, who have kicked down doors and planted flags, not just for music, but for feminism, fashion, social justice, and human rights. Writer and professor of journalism Evelyn McDonnell leads a team of women writers and pundits, including Ann Powers, Peaches, Daphne Brooks, Salamishah Tillett, Alice Bag, Allison Wolfe, Gayle Wald, jessica Care moore, Vivien Goldman, Adele Bertei, and Holly George-Warren, in an all-out celebration of more than 100 of the greatest female musicians. Organized chronologically, the book profiles each artist and places her in the context of both her genre and the musical world at large. Sidebars throughout recall key moments that shaped both the trajectory of music and how those moments influenced or were influenced by women artists--from Girl Groups to Ladies of the Canyon to Fly Girls. l With full-color illustrated portraits by women artists including Lindsey Bailey, Wendy Case, Winnie T. Frick, Anne Muntges, Grace Slick, and Julie Winegard, Women Who Rock is for every fan, feminist, and female rocker, young or old."--Jacket.
