Riot Grrrl + History of Rock Women-Style
Here’s a snippet:
“During the early years of rock ’n’ roll, female performers were held to a different standard than their male counterparts. As a result, they appropriated masculine characteristics in their sound and image to gain acceptance by the mainstream.
More than a half-century later, things have come full circle, with women artists now fully embracing – and even subverting – feminine stereotypes.
Jen Gunderman, a senior lecturer at Blair School of Music, traced this evolution through slides and sound clips during her Senior Day lecture “Rocking Gender: Stereotype and Subversion Among Female Pop Musicians” May 13 in Wilson Hall.”
