Jackie Fuchs

Jackie Fuchs is a Los Angeles-based entertainment attorney, writer and activist. Also known as Jackie Fox, she was the bassist for the pioneering all-female rock band The Runaways, from 1975 to 1977. After leaving the group she worked as a records promotion executive and music publishing professional manager before returning to school to earn a B.A. in Linguistics from UCLA and a law degree from Harvard. As an attorney she has represented numerous well-known actors, directors, and musical artists. In 2015, Fuchs re-entered the public eye when she told the story of being raped by the late Runaways manager, Kim Fowley, at a party in 1975. Her courage in coming forward sparked a public discussion of sexual assault in the music world that was a direct precursor to today’s #metoo moment.
