Women Who Rock at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum

The latest exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a groundbreaking and provocative new exhibit that illustrates the roles women have played in music, both in the past and present. The Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power exhibit showcases how women have been the driving force behind the change and creation of popular music over the years. The interactive show presents more than 70 artists and fills two entire floors of the museum, highlighting the flashpoints, the firsts, the best - and occasionally the lesser-known women - who helped move rock music and its culture forward.

Move through the eras of rock and roll from the 1920's when the first female jazz musicians and country music artists began recording and breaking the mold as equality for women grew. Travel through musical time as Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin, Deborah Harry and Madonna change the way we rock. The exhibit features artifacts, video and listening stations to learn more about the women in the music industry. And also offers a recording booth where visitors can film a short story or moment of inspiration in their lives that have been influenced by these musical muses.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is a nonprofit organization created to educate visitors, fans and scholars about the history and continuing significance of music. It offers a world-class museum that collects, preserves, exhibits and interprets the art form through its library and archives, as well as its educational program. The museum is in downtown Cleveland, Ohio in the heart of America's mid-west, where the city has a little something for every rocker.
