In the political arena, Bonnie has long been at the forefront of bridging social consciousness and popular music. Coming from a Quaker-activist background, she has performed many concerts for women's organizations, and environmental, peace and human rights groups, especially in support of opponents of nuclear power and intervention in Central America.

In theaters now, it's the kind of gripping music doc that could inspire girls and boys everywhere to ditch Guitar Hero for a real Stratocaster. And yet, as good as it is, we couldn't help but think, Why no female guitarist in the bunch?
