She has released more than 20 albums, and is widely considered a feminist icon. The combination of personal and political is partially responsible for DiFranco's early popularity among politically active college students, particularly those of the left wing, some of whom set up fan pages on the web to document DiFranco's career as early as 1994. DiFranco's rapid rise in popularity in the mid-1990s was fueled mostly by personal contact and word of mouth rather than mainstream media.) {http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ani_DiFranco}
