Rock & Roll and Women's Right's Collection

Women artists have harnessed the power of music to speak out against oppression, demand equal rights, and fight for control over their bodies throughout the entire history of rock & roll. They navigate a consistently cis-male-dominated industry to create music that talks about their experiences from their point of view. While some performers assert ownership over their own sexuality, others spread information about birth control and abortion access. Many BIPOC artists and those in the LGBTQIA+ community sing about the intersectionality of their identities. No matter the topic, all these rockers work diligently to become the protagonists of their own stories and to empower others to do the same. Use this collection to see how women have stood up for themselves and for women around the globe across rock genres.
