Women Who Rock?

Posted By on Wed, Oct 4, 2006 at 10:34 AM

Sure, there are other, pressing, more important political issues going on right now, but this really chaps my hide: AOL's Top 20 Women Who Rock Right Now is just wrong on so many levels, it's hard to even begin. Granted, the list is on AOL, and hence has to reach a "mainstream" audience, and everyone has different definitions of what it means to "rock," and numbers 7, 16, 18, and 14 definitely deserve to be there, as well as a few of the others, but Kelly Clarkson? Seriously? How much of her "rock" persona is actually her and not designed by record-label goons? I get suspicious when being a "woman who rocks" so often involves wearing sexy clothes and being a "bad girl."
