Women's Voices

March is Women's History Month, and March 8 is International Women's Day, so today's Pastures of Plenty will celebrate women's voice.

We'll start out with a rousing gospel stomper from Sister Rosetta Tharpe, then hear from pioneering women folk singsers Elizabeth Cotten, Peggy Seeger, and Melvina Reynolds.and pay tribute to the late activist Anne Feeney.

After we hear from the 1960s giants Joan, Joni , and Judy, we'll hear from some great womens voices from ZEngland, Ireland, Scotland, Africa, and return to the U.S. with The Native American Coolidge sistes group Walela.

We'll finish up with the 1980s folk revivalists Tracy Chapman, Suzanne Vega, and Kate Wolf and then Portland women Meryle Korn, Kate Power, and Mary Flower.
