These women rock.

The third annual Women who Rock benefit concert presented by UPMC Health Plan and UPMC Magee-Womens Hospital is at 6:30 p.m. May 30 at Stage AE on Pittsburgh’s North Side.

Rock radio DJ Michele Michaels of 102.5 WDVE will emcee.

The event coincides with Women’s Health Month.

The show features an all female lineup including this year’s headliner, Sheila E., and Pittsburgh’s top female musicians including Lyndsey Smith, DJ Jess, the award-winning women’s a cappella Sounds of Pittsburgh Chorus, and a performance from this year’s Rising Star Contest winner Melina Bowser, according to a news release.

Proceeds benefit Magee-Womens Research Institute. The institute is “making discoveries and advancing knowledge in areas affecting women including reproductive biology, breast cancer genomics and personalized therapies, HIV immunization and prevention, fertility preservation and is a recognized leader in clinical pelvic floor research.”

The evening includes an interactive beauty bar, auction and happy hour.

The release says that last year’s “Women who Rock Award” winner WTAE’s Kelly Frey will present this year’s recipient Dr. Sharon Hillier, professor and vice chair of the department of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and Magee-Womens Research Institute. Hillier is a microbiologist whose work has influenced the intersection of women’s health and HIV prevention.

Tickets are $55-$85.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
