Hard Rock Women
Sure, males seem to dominate the hard rock and metal music scene, but women can rock just as hard - if not harder! Female rockers have made such important contributions to the world of music, that the Rock and Roll Hall of fame even had an exhibit called Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power which was on display from May 13, 2011 - February 26, 2012.
Never underestimate the power of a woman! Here's an informational source of some of the women of rock and roll.
Canadian hard rock singer and songwriter Lee Aaron has been rockin' out since 1980. Her hits include the songs "Metal Queen", "Whatcha Do to My Body", and "Sex with Love". These days, she's been playing both rock and jazz shows.
I once won a ticket to a show of hers at the Sports Arena in San Diego. Won. Ticket. ONE ticket. I ended up not going, and that's something I regret to this day. That was during the Get Nervous tour and I'm sure I missed an incredible show. Years later I was able to finally catch her in concert, and that was during her jazz phase.
My favorite Pat Benatar song: Fire & Ice
den Adel, Sharon Janny
Sharon fronts the Dutch gothic rock band Within Temptation. I just heard their song, "Faster" for the first time on Sirius Radio's Octane channel this morning. Wow! Nice tune!
My very first concert was a Lita Ford concert! She opened for Ratt. It was a great show and my sister and I had a fun time.

Lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for Pretty Reckless
You may remember her as the voice of Sister Mary in the epic Queensryche work, Operation Mindcrime. Pamela Moore is also the voice of Radar which released an album called RPM in 2000.
With an ethereal voice, Lacey fronts the band Flyleaf, singing on tunes like "All Around Me" and "I'm So Sick"
Influenced by Santana and having listened to a lot of Whitesnake, Van Halen and Def Leppard growing up, singer and guitarist Orianthi even soloed with Santana, and rehearsed with no other than the King of Pop.
My favorite Orianthi song: According To You

Doro is a great singer, and she was born in Germany. I was born there too! She used to sing with a band called Warlock.
My favorite Doro Pesch song: Fight For Rock
Sandi Saraya and her band Saraya made quite a splash back in the day! One of my favorite voices in rock, I think I even heard her on a radio commercial singing the automaker's famous tagline, "Mazda! Passion for the road!"
My favorite Saraya song: Love Has Taken It's Toll

Cristina is the lead vocalist for Lacuna Coil and I just love her voice. It was really cool to hear her sing on the Megadeth remake of A Tout Le Monde!
Wilson, Ann & Nancy
I was able to catch these rock legends in concert and the set they did was half acoustic and half electric, it was stupendous!
My favorite Heart song: In Walks the Night
