Angry Women in Rock Redux

I love this quote from Joan Jett in the Guardian:

Joan Jett would go even further than that: she thinks a new revolution is on its way. “I think we’re coming back to that fertile ground where people have had enough of the way things are, I can feel it. Those girls are out there, in every city, banging around – and when they find their outlet, it’s going to be just like it was for me.” Jett’s voice is defiant, strong, and celebratory. “A new generation picking up guitars and drums and saying, ‘I’m here! Let’s go!'”
