Join musicologist and campaigner Dr Laura Watson as she explores the culture of women in rock and popular music writing their life stories and 'finding a voice' through their memoirs. Why have so many turned to this format in recent years? What kind of voices do they have as authors? How and why do their memoirs differ to those by their male counterparts? And as listeners and readers, what can we learn from their narratives?
