Following is a little bit about Girls Rock.

Mission:

Girls Rock! Rochester is dedicated to empowering girls through music creation and performance. By providing educational workshops and technical training, we foster creativity while cultivating a supportive community of peers and mentors, encouraging social change and the development of life and leadership skills that girls can utilize to help guide them throughout life.

Statement of Purpose:

By providing educational music lessons and workshops that foster creativity, we hope to encourage girls to explore their self-expressive creative outlets that may not have been explored otherwise. We believe that young girls in today’s society are at a disadvantage as they are often pressured from a young age to conform to gender stereotypes that have been preconceived by society and the mainstream media. Girls Rock! Rochester strives to empower girls by using rock music as a tool to harness their inner “rock star,” helping to develop self confidence and a strong mind.

The human condition has always been about search for meaning and self definition, and fashion is inextricably bound with our identity and how we choose to express this and find our place in the world
