WOMEN'S HISTORY MONTH 2021

Women played a central role in the development of the rock-and-roll genre, beginning with early blues artists, like Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith, and gospel artist Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Spirited rhythm-and-blues singers – such as Ruth BrownLaVern Baker, and rockabilly star Wanda Jackson added their creative talents to popular music through its explosive growth in the ‘50s. Girl groups, like the Shirelles and Supremes, and Rock Hall’s first female Inductee Aretha Franklin dominated the charts in the ‘60s while Janis JoplinGrace Slick and Joni Mitchell carried the torch into the ‘70s. Artists such as Joan JettAnn WilsonDebbie HarryPat BenatarChrissie HyndePatti Smith, and Stevie Nicks paved the way for women in the ‘80s and ‘90s with their music and style. And, blazing a way through the 21st century includes the incredible voices of St. VincentJanelle MonaeLady GagaBeyonce, and new generations of trailblazers who were influenced by those before them.
