Women have made great strides in recent years in breaking the glass ceiling. While there is still a long way to go, we now have a female Vice President, and women are gaining more and more acceptance as “equals” in many other endeavors. In noting their progress, it seems appropriate to recognize them for their great contributions to popular music. This course will highlight many of the great women song writers and performers working today or in the recent past. They will include Barbra Streisand, Dionne Warwick, Judy Garland, Joni Mitchell, Natalie Merchant, Sarah McLachlan, Dusty Springfield, Linda Ronstadt, Carly Simon, Carole King and many others. During the course, we will discuss their backgrounds and history and hear much of their music.
