As rebellion is kind of my own personal theme for right now, I’m having fun rediscovering the women who have personally inspired me for so long. Whether I’m heading to a meeting where I know I need to pull out all the stops or I’m trying to get off the couch to go workout, I like to have a steady supply of women who drive me forward. And now, I’m sharing those favorites with you.
This is like a time capsule of music that I absolutely love, filled with names of women I positively admire. Please meet the No Excuses Club, the Higher Class of Badass….my female rocker heroes.
From Grace Slick and Janis Joplin to Tina Turner, Pat Benatar, and Debbie Harry of Blondie to my Lilith Fair ladies like Liz Phair, Sarah McLaughlin, and Juliana Hatfield, and all the way over to personal favorites like Siouxsie Sioux and Shirley Manson, these are my ladies. May they continue to light the way for decades to come, may we pass their torch on for future generations of gals who will, as Maya Angelou once said, grab the world by the lapels and kick ass.
