Rock Chicks went off!

 I had the best time down in Melbourne being involved with the Rock Chicks Live performance. I have always stayed at arms length from any kind of "women's" movements or feminist activism, preferring to just get on with my work.....but meeting the older generations of female musicians such as Carol Lloyd, Margaret Roadknight and Jeannie Lewis opened my eyes to how much groundwork had to be done in Australia before women of my generation could be regarded as serious musicians without being heckled, laughed at, abused or ignored. Truly inspiring. The band was awesome, the vocalists were amazing and the overall vibe was very uplifting. The exhibition is great too, so if you're in Melbourne check it out at the Arts Centre.
