Women Who Rock | PBS

Duration: 01:31
Program: PBS Arts from Cleveland: Women Who Rock
Broadcast Date: Nov. 18, 2011

From Bessie Smith to Janis Joplin to Lady Gaga, this performance documentary vibrates with energy as it traces the indelible mark that amazing women musicians have made on America's soundtrack. Inspired by the "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, "Women Who Rock" reveals new insights into what it means to be female in the male-dominated world of rock and roll, while exploring how those dynamics between the sexes have changed with time. Cyndi Lauper, who appears in the program, hosts. The film is produced by Susan Wittenberg and Carol Stein with assistance from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The evening's presentation is in collaboration with PBS member station WVIZ/PBS ideastream®. WOMEN WHO ROCK airs as part of the PBS Arts Fall Festival.
