Welcome to the Jenny Woolworth Women in Punk Archive. This database features female performers active in the underground and independent music scene of the 1970s and 1980s. It is by no means comprehensive and in many ways totally subjective.

Thanks to the individuals from whom I collected ideas, names and information, especially Dina Honreich's Typical Girls mailing list, Sharon Cheslow's Women In Punk List and Rockin' Rina.

If I have overlooked something, please contact me!
