Girls learn empowerment through rock music

Bay Area Girls Rock Camp kicked off last week in downtown Oakland. Eighty girls, from ages 8 to 18, learned to play guitar, drums, synthesizer and sing. This is the third summer of Bay Area Girls Rock Camp, where attendees get to do more than just learn about music—they also go to screen printing classes where they design band logos and print them on t-shirts, take self-defense classes, participate in image and identity workshops, and learn about song writing and music her-story.

The next Bay Area Girls Rock Camp session is from July 12 – 16 at Oakland School for the Arts, and their showcase, which is open to the public, is on July 17 at Oakland Metro.
