Hundreds of people participated in the rally, dwarfing a ... Read More

I’ve watched Rock ‘N’ Roll Camp For Girls grow and kick butt since their first session in 2001 teaching girls ages 8-18 how to rock hard, but living on the east coast I could only dreamily wish of wailing on a guitar in Portland, Oregon with the rest of them.

I’m just pleased with everything, from the piece on the Obamas (I’ve got a total girl crush on Michelle) to seeing a big pic of Lena Horne.  Maybe I’ll write a thank you letter to Franca Sozzani because I’m seriously thinking this woman ...
