Zoso was the beginning of identifying research interests in rock and roll ideology, feminism, and sociocultural phenomena. I was looking at the birth of MTV in the 1980s, and how the network constructed femininity and images of women. The research began with me questioning my love of rock and roll music and icons, as I was observing the genre’s centering of White heterosexual males and misogony. I wondered, Where are all the women, how did they identify, what were they living and moving through? Within these questions, I was examining notions of womanhood, and the ways in which my familial cultural history connects to my fascination with rock and roll.
