Editorial Reviews

Review

"Chosen for the 2005 Amelia Bloomer Recommended List of the American Library Association."―

"The stories are touching, personal, gritty, real, and political. . . . It gave me a sense of a legacy, that we have grandmas who've been building these bridges for us. It's a powerful thing to be written into being, to illuminate the hidden stories with joy."―Clamor

"An exploration of women as musicians, their relationship to the music industry, and the way women construct their identities as girls who rock."―Corvallis (OR) Gazette-Times

"Combines feminist analysis, history, and developmental theory to describe women's journey on the rock 'n' roll road."―Eugene (OR) Register-Guard

"Treats female rockers with the depth and seriousness that they deserve and have all to often been denied."―Iola (WI) Goldmine

"Manages to avoid the conflation of popular music to pop stars and instead to incorporate lesser-known musicians into the history of rock."―Journal of Material Culture

"Sets out to find out how women develop identities as rock 'n' roll musicians. It's not a book about women and rock; rather, Girls Rock! Discusses women's relationship to rock."―Portland Oregonian

"Carson, Lewis, and Shaw have written a book that fills a significant gap in the current discourse on women in popular music. They examine the connection between selfhood and music-making in a way that both validates and honors the unique experience of women in rock-and-roll. These girls rock!"―Teresa Reed, author of The Holy Profane: Religion in Black Popular Music
