Question by Ellie Chick: What role did Aretha Franklin have during the Womens Movement in the 60s?
I have to research what role Aretha Franklin had in the Womens Movement in the 60′s. Please help. Any information would be helpful.
Answer by Muchuchu
She was able to bring strength and encourage independence to women through her music
she was such a rare talent and her music was great, so there was popular demand and her music got played more and more all over the place
she became an icon to all women, when she sang “Respect” because she showed women that they deserve respect and should be treated well and with consideration

According to a May 14, 2013 ABC News report entitled Women Have New Options for Breast Cancer Surgery, movie star Angelina Jolie revealed that she recently had both breasts removed prophylactically because she carries the gene that put her at a very high risk of developing breast cancer (go to: goo.gl/zmBnT). That same day Ms. Jolie revealed in the NY Times that her mother died at age 56 from cancer and that shed been informed by her doctors that she had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent chance of ovarian cancer. (goo.gl/Gh41l)
The advances detailed in the ABC News report are truly amazing, says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. And I have personally been able to offer laser scar removal treatment to post-mastectomy and breast augmentation patients.
Ms. Jolie disclosed in the NY Times piece that shed completed the reconstruction of her breasts with implants and is very pleased with the results. It appears too that her physicians were able to save her nipples, a procedure thats become available only recently according to ABC News.
The ABC News report goes on to detail some of the other recent developments in surgery aimed at making mastectomies and post-mastectomy augmentations less disfiguring. Included in this list are breast-conserving and breast-sparing treatments such as chemotherapy and hormone therapy to shrink tumors pre-operatively and freezing and killing tumors so they dont have to be removed at all.
Aside from being a physician, my family has been touched by cancer, says Dr. Ourian, so I have a real appreciation for the emotional toll these treatments take. Im very grateful that in my practice as a cosmetic dermatologist I can provide treatments that can help alleviate the distress.
Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, JuvTags: ABC News report, Los Angeles, Angelina Jolie, New York Times, breast cancer, Breast Cancer Surgery, ABC News

Hip Hop go-getter, Sealy Troh, is scheduled to release his much-anticipated digital 15-track album Yellow Lights, on Friday, April 19, 2013. Presented by ZLBG Records, the EP features producers David Gielan, Ian Anderson, Roy Hamilton, JayKode, Siness, Quantum 4 and Black Phantom and is written, co-produced, and performed in Sealy Trohs unrivaled style.
Having opened for Hip Hop acts E-40, Masta Ace, Marco Polo, The Grouch & Eligh and Suga Free, Sealy Troh is quickly building his credibility as a performer with a draw of his own. In addition to his performances at local venues, Sealy Troh has also done his part to raise community awareness with his powerful stage presence at the Relay for Life, the Black Music and Arts Festival and several schools and colleges.
Roused by reputable artists Daft Punk, People Under the Stairs, Kendrick Lamar, Atmosphere, and A Tribe Called Quest, Trohs 15-track album is driven by the fundamentals of Ska, Hardcore, Punk, Metal, and Hip Hop. Like those styles, those genres, Im drawn to lyrics where there are messages about living your life, living your dream, and being free, says Sealy Troh.
Juggling multiple roles in numerous bands during his time at California State University Northridge, Troh decided to breakout as a one-man act and has since ignited a YouTube frenzy with psychedelic-influenced videos like Another Day, G-Men, and Yesterday, leading to over 100,000 hits, countless performance opportunities, and an overnight boom in his fan base.
Winning the hearts and ears of young Los Angeles, Sealy Troh is quickly becoming a relatable voice to his generation. Im in a great place, says Troh. Seeing everything around me, I want to take people places they want to go. Music has been opening up lots of opportunities for me; and, I want my friends and family to benefit from those opportunities, too. Thats what drives me!
Yellow Lights will be available via iTunes, datpiff.com, hotnewhiphop.com, livemixtapes.com, djbooth.com and mixtapepass.com.

LIPGLOSS | boyhollow, Tower & Largechild | Free tix to The xx & BRMC
Event on 2013-05-17 21:00:00
boyhollow is an old goth that plays music for hipsters, indie-rockers, bass-heads, gays, party kids, trannies, meat-heads, woo girls and even the occasional hippie. He doesn’t believe in writing bios containing a bunch of cliches about what an awesome DJ he is. He’d rather be making you dance. He is the founder of Lipgloss (est. 2001), Denver’s longest running and most awarded club-night. Lipgloss pulls in over 500 people a week and consistently runs at capacity. Lipgloss was instrumental in – if not arguably responsible for – creating Denver’s indie dance scene. He is also resident DJ at Scumbag Sundays at Shag Lounge and founder and resident DJ of both Girls and Boys Denver and Porn and Chicken Denver. He has worked with, performed at and produced parties with some of music’s biggest names: Passion Pit, The XX, Girl Talk, Miami Horror, The Juan Maclean, Miike Snow, Yeasayer, !!!, MSTRKRFT, Autoerotique, Figure, Mars Volta, Simian Mobile Disco, Steve Aoki, Bloody Beetroots, Chromeo, Calvertron, Le Castle Vania, Treasure Fingers, VHS or Beta, Le Tigre, Felix Cartal, Fake Blood, Blondie, Interpol, Phoenix, Boys Noize, Crookers, LCD Soundsystem, Guns'n'Bombs, Mustard Pimp, Junkie XL, LA Riots, The Faint, K.I.M. (The Presets), Chuckie, Cool Kids, Muse, Tommie Sunshine, The Klaxons, Devo, The Cars, Toxic Avenger, Daedelus, Snowden, RAC DJ's, The Motherfucking Gaslamp Killer, The Rapture, Airborne Toxic Event, Ghostland Observatory, The Bravery, She Wants Revenge, Mickey Avalon, Electric Six, Paparazzi, Paul Anthony, Bird Peterson, Hot Pink Delorean, Ladytron, Blaqk Audio, Peter Hook (Joy Division, New Order), Tim Burgess (The Charlatans), Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce (The Smiths), Spencer Moody (Murder City Devils), Marky Ramone (The Ramones), Stellastar*, Nadastrom, Anna Lunoe, Keane, Blondie and many more that have fallen into the drunken haze of time. Currently involved in some exciting production and remixing work with artists like The Chaotic Good and Paul Anthony, keep your eyes and ears peeled for the new movement in Denver’s dance scene. It’s going to be a coup d'état of massive proportion.
DJ Tower has been DJing in Denver since 1993. He started by playing music at friend's parties and event with his own home stereo, cd players and a pawn shop special mixing board. Now he has been DJing for 15 years which has allowed him the experience to develop a sound and mix with his own unique style and technical skills. In the early days, Tower developed his style by playing in many small venues such as Flavors, The Snake Pit, Tonic, 7 South (now Hi-Dive), and anyone who would have him. He also became involved with the world of band and event promotions with FastForward productions and putting on large Fetish/goth events. During this time he began to gain the attention of some of the established DJs in town. They in-turn, gave him the opportunity to spin his style of music to larger audiences. Soon, he began DJing at some of the bigger clubs in Denver. Since this time, he has played to audiences at the Church, Deadbeat Club, Vinyl, Rock Island, Club Onyx and many other clubs and events. Tower's musical tastes vary widely and spans many many genres. He has done nights in genres such as industrial, alternative, synthpop, futurepop, nuwave, gothic, 80s, nu school breaks, psytrance, indie, brit-pop and other types of music. While DJing, industrial and alternative he became aware of the bands Felix da Housecat and Ladytron. Through these bands he discovered the exciting and trashy world of electro/electroclash/dancepunk/electrohouse music scene. It is one of the most exciting musical changes in alternative dance music in a very long time. If you want to hear the freshest electro sounds, Tower will not disappoint.
People say DJ Largechild plays all the good music you forgot that you loved. He got his first set of tables back when he was a kid and has been on them everyday since.
