Females, of course, played an important role within the subculture, assigned either as the adoring screamers who bolstered the male performers' egos, or as the mythical dreamy romantics who lay on their beds staring at their rebel-idols staring back at them from the posters on their walls.
As might be expected from her outsider status and audacity, Jackson never attained the mainstream rock prominence of the male contemporaries she so admired.
A born-again Christian today (the fate of many a '50s rockabilly rebel), Jackson continues to perform on the nostalgia circuit, reminding new generations, through her strident songs, that subversive humor and rock rebellion in the '50s were not the sole preserve of the more celebrated canon of male iconic performers.
