Women Who Rock Project is excited to redefine words, music, genres, space, community & love at the 2nd annual Women Who Rock: Making Scenes, Building Communities Meeting and Film Festival--“Vibrations of Love.” We invite activists, scholars, musicians, filmmakers, and artists to submit proposals for topic-focused open workshops that will promote dialogue about women, music, and social justice, taking into account issues of gender, race, ethnicity, class and sexuality.
