The women rewriting rock music’s history. Anglo-American and Polish sequence

  • Joanna Roś

Abstract

Proving that recent years have been a meaningful period for women writing about rock music in general, Joanna Roś demonstrates how rock autobiographies written by female musicians, together with groundbreaking, English-language publications which approach the question of women and music from a number of perspectives, shed new light on the female experience in the rock industry. The author presents the specifics of the Polish reception of “female rock literature”, and explains why it seems to be very important to make comprehensive, scientific publications on the presence of women in rock music available to Polish readers interested in culture history, from within and from outside of academic circles.
