International Women’s Day: Blondie

It takes a certain kind of person to turn a trucker's cat call into a band name, and Debbie Harry happened to be that kind of person. Blondie quickly went from underground rockers to New Wave pioneers, turning Harry into a punk icon. Ever outspoken, she was once quotes saying “the only place left for rock to go is toward more girl stars. There's bound to be more male stars, but they can't express anything new.” She's a strong, creative, confident woman that influences artists of all kinds to this day.
