NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 23, 2003--The secret's out in the July/August issue of Women Who Rock where the 50 women who rocked the world are revealed. This is Women Who Rock's exclusive look at the women who made the music world their own, the women who opened the doors and held them open for others to walk through, the women who turned the boys' club of popular music into an equal-opportunity club, if only for a little while. From the seminal twang of Memphis Minnie to the edgy expressionism of Bjork, the list couldn't be complete without, of course, Madonna who graces the cover.
In addition, this issue hitting stands July 7th features genre-spanning stories including chats with folk-rock sisters act Tegan & Sara, chick rappers Northern State, Electrocute, and jazz violinist Regina Carter. Women Who Rock has revealing and candid talks with musical legends Heart, Judy Collins, and Poison Ivy of the Cramps, just to name a few.
In support of this new issue, CBS 2 News This Morning will be running a live three minute segment on Women Who Rock on Tuesday, June 24th at 6:45 am. Editor Dianne Spoto Shattuck will be interviewed by anchor Shon Gables about the origins of the magazine and its relevance in today's pop culture.
Additional marketing efforts behind the July/August issue include several major sponsorships. Women Who Rock will have prominent on-site presence at the Vans Warped Tour's 45 venues this summer as well as at several of the female concerts at Central Park SummerStage 2003. Women Who Rock will also be the Official Music Magazine at the very first Girlz Garage Tour this fall. Created by the producers of the Warped Tour, The Girlz Garage Tour is a spin off of the popular area "Ladies Lounge" which has been a part of the nine year Vans Warped Tour. It is an organically grown tour, with a dominating female audience and appeal and includes groups such as Sahara Hotnights and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
