CLEVELAND — The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum will open a ground-breaking and provocative new exhibit that will illustrate the important roles women have played in rock and roll, from its inception through today. “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power” will highlight the firsts, the best, the celebrated and sometimes lesser-known women who moved rock and roll music and American culture forward.

To kick off the exhibit’s opening weekend on Saturday, May 14, the Museum’s annual It’s Only Rock and Roll Spring Benefit Concert will feature an all-star lineup including Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee Wanda Jackson and Cyndi Lauper, both featured in the Women Who Rock exhibit.
