How do women in popular music achieve fame? What is the role of reputation, good and/or bad, in the career of the woman artist in jazz, rock, pop, hip-hop, and other popular music genres? Has this changed over time? What is the role of the music business—managers, publicists, producers—in the formation of the pop/rock/rap/jazz woman’s public persona? How does fame influence an artist’s work? Successful papers will address these or other fame-related questions in the work of one or more women in popular music.
