History Nights at McMenamins "Women and Rock Music: How Oregon Turns
Girls into Rock Stars," presented by Mina Carson and Susan Shaw. Live

and roll tell the stories of how Oregon became such an important part of
the rock and roll scene for women. The Northwest has helped build the
careers of girl bands with institutions like the Rock N Roll Camp for
Girls in Portland, enrolling future girl rockers ages 7 to 18.
