Riot Grrrls

Leave a comment

I was in Zimbabwe, I guess, and missed the Riot Grrl movement – loved this documentary though, great Christmas listening http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01p9l1l

‘For many young women coming of age in the nineties and beyond, the music of the Riot Grrrl movement was tremendously influential. It had a riotous exuberance, with bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile and Huggy Bear encouraging young women to stand up and shout out against a culture that they felt had turned a deaf ear to the voices of young women.’
