  1. Reblogged this on michaelconen "where were you?" and commented:
    I would highly recommend taking a look at foremothers’ highly exhaustive research on women in music.

    No commentary, really, but many links to other resources on artists which cover the musical spectrum.

    Plus, she kindly selected a few photos of mine to share 🙂
