Once a week Inspirer will feature a selection of drawings by our staff photographer, Annie Govekar. The drawings are part of the “Nevertheless” portrait project which feature inspiring women and their quotes. This week the “Nevertheless” portraits will continue to highlight women featured in Inspirer’s “Induct These Women” series.


The Runaways

Their firm footing in the punk rock scene and their global influence make The Runaways an obvious choice for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Despite their short tenure, The Runaways made an indelible mark on rock and roll. They were quickly accepted as an inevitable piece of the punk music landscape, mingling with punk icons like The Ramones and The Sex Pistols.

Joan Jett is already quite definitely a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee as a member of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. The induction invited controversy when it was announced that Miley Cyrus would do the honors but the world quickly learned that Cyrus is a lifelong fan who has covered Jett’s songs and even performed duets with the rock legend on more than one occasion. Cyrus’s impassioned speech painted a picture of just how influential Jett has been throughout the course of her career. But just because she was inducted already does not mean The Runaways are off the list.
