Carmelita Rossana Ford also known as Lita Ford (born 19 September 1958) is an English born rock musician. She was the lead guitarist of The Runaways.

At the age of ten Lita was a fan of rock and roll, and already had her first nylon string guitar. When she was a teenager she was playing at parties as the only girl in an all male band. She was brought to Kim Fowley's attention when he was helping Joan Jett and Sandy West finish the line up for The Runaways.
