Yesterday was a celebration of “Women Who Rock” on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Rock heroines Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett, and Pat Benatar got on the day time diva’s stage in a true celebration of girl power.
Oprah celebrated women in the music world who have made the tunes to the soundtracks of our lives and blazed a trail for future stars. Like women in other fields and aspects of society, they had to break through the stereotypical norm and prove they could hang with the men who had been dominating the rock world.
