Here's a great shot of Janis Joplin singing on stage during her performance at the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. One of the major concerning social issues at the time of Woodstock were regarding human sexuality and women's rights. 

This was a time when women were screaming for equality and Janis Joplin stepped on the scene and became the biggest female rock star of the era. She was this powerful voice breaking new ground for women in the rock music industry. She was the embodiment of a wild child, leaving the confining community she grew up in to do things her way.
