  Girl group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term "girl group" is generally not applied to girl bands or all-women bands, in which women play instruments as well as sing.
Modern girl groups date back to the late 1950s and the beginning of the 1960s, when they were often manufactured by producers or record companies.
Girl groups appeared on TV shows such as "Shindig" and "Hullaballo" in the U.S., and "Tops of the Pops" in the U.K. By the mid-late 1960s, in the face of the British Invasion and the increasing popularity of rock music, the popularity of girl groups began to wane.
