Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll: Which insanely overlooked female artist deserves induction next? [Vote Now]

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame poll: Which insanely overlooked female artist deserves induction next? [Vote Now]
When we suggested 12 female rockers late last summer to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame voters, not one of them was chosen for induction. It’s still one of the biggest hot button issues for this group that they continue to insanely overlook some of the greatest ladies in this genre, almost always choosing male groups and solo men instead.

The only female artist inducted this year was the late Nina Simone, known more in her career for soul, R&B and blues than rock. Sister Rosetta Tharpe was recognized at the 2018 ceremony for her early influence. In fact, some of the only female artists inducted in recent years have been Joan Baez (2017), Darlene Love (2011), Linda Ronstadt (2014) and Donna Summer (2013).

So we provide you with the same dozen ladies below for consideration to be inducted in 2019 because we feel like they all eventually deserve to join the Hof. Vote now

Sarah Hyland Slams the Gop's Rollback on Contraception Laws: It Is 'for More Than Just Our Sex Lives You Pig'
Modern Family star Sarah Hyland was among the many stars speaking out Friday about President Donald Trump‘s controversial decision to roll back an Obamacare requirement that employers include birth control coverage in their health insurance plans without a co-pay — a decision made, Trump’s administration claimed, under the guise of protecting religious freedom and moral sensibilities as birth control promotes “risky sexual behavior.”

Effective immediately, any for-profit or non-profit employer or insurer can deny contraception coverage if they have “religious or moral objections.” According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, employers will not have to file

But along with that glut of information also comes total transparency about what they have and haven’t done, including what plastic surgeries they’ve most recently undergone.
