"The women’s music networks were for many of us where we gathered to sing and stomp and share the pulsing rhythms of our lives. This book captures that sense of exhilaration, enthusiasm and possibility so many of us celebrated. What it also does is detail the history of how women rewrote the rules of production and distribution, putting together all kind of women who could rent a theater or church or basement hall so that we could come together and sing the lyrics that detailed what we hoped to accomplish—a revolutionary poetry, an alternative network of women making their own way in the world. When there were no spaces where we could hear our musicians, we made those spaces and along the way remade the rules for what women could accomplish on the neighborhood level. I stood in those crowds, sang along with Meg Christian and Casse Culver and women who played rock & roll and bluegrass and all the music that echoed in my bloodstream. Jamie Anderson has caught the lightning and put it on the page." -- Dorothy Allison (Bastard Out of Carolina)
