riot grrrl 101

  • About the author EB

Despite writing an essay on riot grrrl in college (and listening to some of the bands, of course), I knew very little about this punk rock, feminist movement—which I realized once I read Girls to the Front: The True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution by Sara Marcus, on sale September 28. Basically, I knew the music—from bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy, and Huggy Bear—but not much about what went on around it. If you’re anything like me, I highly encourage you to check out Girls to the Front. Just click below to read the beginning and you’ll be hooked!
