She says that while her country has changed a lot, there is still much work to be done.

  • Meet the awesome rock singer, songwriter, and guitarist of the band L7, Donita Sparks. Donita read us the story of the godmother of punk, Joan Jett. Donita tells us how she got into rock music, what the LA music scene was like when she got her start in the 1980s, and how things are changing for women rockers over time (thanks in part to the pioneering Joan Jett).

  • Although Joan Jett has been called the “Godmother of punk,” this rocker’s rise to super stardom came with plenty of twists and turns. From the time Joan picked up her first electric guitar at age 13 in 1971, she was met with the refrain that “girls don’t play guitars”—and that they certainly don’t play rock. Joan spent the rest of her life proving these naysayers wrong, founding one of the first all-girl rock bands at age 16 before skyrocketing to the top of the charts as the frontwoman of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.

    About the Narrator
    Donita Sparks is a singer, songwriter, guitarist, writer and actor. She first rose to fame with legendary all female American rock band, L7, which remains active to this day.
