Confidence For Girls: Part 2
I want to start a list of role models for musical girls. Let's go.
2. Joan Jett. (See above description) Also plays the guitar.
3. Kathleen Hanna. Often getting penned as the "Leader of the Riot Grrl Movement," Kathleen Hanna was the leader singer of the early 90's post-punk band "Bikini Kill." She and a slew of other women were tired of the male run punk-rock movement, and so they all decided to start bands and sing about it.
4. Tori Amos. Growing up is hard to do. Sometimes you have to be a girl and spill your feelings even if the boys on the playground call you a baby. Tori took all those tortured emotions every young girl feels at some point in her life, and she turned them into beautiful, melodic prose.
5. Joni Mitchell. The ultimate flower-child, Joni Mitchell is one talented lady. She possesses the talents of communicating feelings through painting, poetry, guitar, piano, and singing. Joni painted the covers of many of her album covers, wrote all the songs, made us feel good with her calming voice, and made us think with her insightful and poetic lyrics.
