She›s A Rebel is a powerful collection of Herstory in rock and roll, covering four decades of women in rock with over 65 photos, posters, programs and flyers. This collection illuminates the important role women have played in the development of rock music - from the Ÿ50s, when rock and roll was still considered off-shoot music by the public, to when it finally received respectability at the end of the Ÿ70s.
Highlighted are the individual women artists who kept making music despite overwhelming odds till finally the music industry had to realize that women were there to stay. Their struggle was not in vain, for it opened doors for the next generation of women rockers, lent power to the music industry and gave great music to the world. Included in this documentation are all the major developments, from girl groups to Motown, folk and disco.
This is one of the first lively collections of our rock heroines whose raw talent and bravado liberated the rock & roll rebel in every woman. She›s a Rebel charts the strides that women have made in the rock world while also making it clear that sexism in the music industry prevails still today. The She›s a Rebel Collection documents women in all facets of the music industry and marks the strides made along with the Women›s Movement in coming into their own. Their success, particularly in overcoming obstacles, is what makes this collection a celebration of women›s achievements in the music industry as well as a history of those achievements.
