Sarah Dougher was active as a musician in the late 1990s and early 2000s in Portland, Oregon and put music out both as a solo artist and in the bands the Lookers, Cadallaca and the Crabs (records were released on K, Kill Rock Stars and Mr. Lady). Although she was not involved with riot grrrl, she helped organise the first Ladyfest in 2000 and was very involved with the development of the Rock Camp for Girls in its first years (she still volunteers at the camp). Her research now is focused on contemporary tween music-making and consumption, and she teaches the history of women and popular music at Portland State University.
