Joan Jett in Santa Monica Pier by Brad Elterman, 1977 

“I grew up in a world that told girls they couldn’t play rock ‘n’ roll. People don’t want to see women doing things they don’t think women should do. Girls see these defined roles they’re supposed to follow in life, but when I was a young child, my parents told me I could be anything.”

Joan Jett, 1975
