Self-consciously rebellious and defiant, punk rock emerged in the 1970s as a subculture that rejected what it saw as the overblown and outdated mythology of rock and roll history dominated by male performers.  This new punk attitude opened doors for women to actively engage rock and roll culture in fresh and exciting ways.  From Patti Smith to Bikini Kill, Siouxsie Sioux to L7, female musicians claimed punk as their own into the 1980s and 1990s and created music that challenged listeners to listen in a new way, to challenge long held beliefs and to redefine the position of women in society.
