I Don’t Give a Damn about my Bad Reputation

I Don’t Give a Damn about my Bad Reputation is a documentary film, which aims to explore the role of women in rock and metal music history.  The title is cleverly used from the famous Joan Jett anthem as a stab at the unhealthy view of women in music.  In our modern time when women are still reportedly being groped at concerts, not being taken seriously, or struggling to find their way in the male dominated music world, Bad Reputation will provide insight from those involved and strives to provide a powerful representation for women breaking through.
