These women are those who "give you back your experience” as one man said. Hendryx describes the Rock Solid Woman as one who “mines and tends our feminine emotions and refines them with her art. And sometimes for the first time, because she expressed the essence of them she makes it possible for you to recognize and know them. And once you know, you just might be able to begin to change them. Female singers are like 'effigies,' they provide us with a ‘surrogate for the original’ or what’s missing.” In kind, Hendryx invokes the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements with this festival.
