Editorial Reviews

Review


“Riot grrrl is the gateway drug that girls use to find feminist history. I love love love this book—a snapshot of what riot grrrl was and could be.”—Kathleen Hanna

“What an experience–this book shows a movement being born and taking form, and how revolutionary ideas move from hand to hand. The Riot Grrrl Collection is alive with intimacy, passion, anger, and fun.”—Sheila Heti

“The materials in this book are more important than ever. Riot grrrl shows us that feminism isn't synonymous with consumer empowerment. Passed person to person, riot grrrl culture advances a true revolution in which ‘girl’ qualities like candor and empathy are no longer trivialized and can re-make the world."—Chris Kraus

The Riot Grrrl Collection preserves a vital history of feminism that will inspire scholars, artists, and activists alike.”—Ann Cvetkovich

“Forget Andy Warhol and everyone being famous for 15 minutes. Because of riot grrrl we have new, exciting political movements every 15 minutes.”—Vaginal Davis

"What zine-making taught me about writing: 1. shock yourself with honesty, 2. the truth is messy, 3. be brave like her. I use these riot grrrl skills every single day."—Miranda July

Twenty years ago I was in high school hell and the things that made me feel better was punk rock and zines. Riot grrrl was a huge part of that. The high school I went to was very hostile towards feminists and punks. My heart goes out to young girls dealing with that now and I hope they get this book. Even though I never went to any riot grrrl meetings or hung out with any riot grrrls the movement made a huge impact on me. The idea that feminism can be cool and to be proud of ones identity when others are trying to tear you down is huge when one is 15! God bless these trailblazing women.

I mean you cant really go wrong here. It is a great sampling of the archived riot grrrl movement. Informed by the individuals who started the scene.

There's something so important about riot grrrl culture. It's angry and unafraid and intensely supportive of what women and grrrls go through, no matter who, no matter where. Beside the fierce exterior is a precious understanding of our lives. This collection includes so much important history, the voices of so many girls who found strength through the music and culture of the era.

This book is so important - not just as a history, but for present day reading. It is so so good for younger women to take the time to read these awesome, fun, poignant zines - it will make you a better woman, and more equipped to handle discrimination, dumb boys, issues with your appearance, you name it. These articulate such critical experiences.

I can hardly believe this collection is real--these voices from zines vibrate with such proximity and intensity, it feels like they're speaking directly to me today. You don't need a background interest or knowledge about Riot Grrrl to love this collection--it's words alone, full of love and rage and hope, will win you over regardless.

Beautiful and fun---the raucous pages of riot grrrl zines are put together in this collection, which memorializes the creativity and color that defined the day-to-day of this movement.
