Editorial Reviews

Review

'This is an excellent book, which examines -- whatever you make of it -- a significant and fertile cultural phenomenon' Art Rocker 'A fascinating, exhaustive and balanced overview' Buzz 'An intense but delightfully insightful read' Grafik 'What this book manages to capture so candidly, though, is the identification and celebration of the personal as political; the fundamental element of third wave feminism' PlanB 'There's something splendidly inspirational about reading Riot Grrl' Wire Featured in FinTim, FT Germany, Dagens Nyheter, G2, Studio Voice, Vice Japan, and Subtext

Format: Paperback
I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as it had not been reviewed at the time I purchased it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's split into 4 sections: the first two cover the history of riot grrrl, the third riot grrrl writing and zines, and the fourth the movement's relevance to feminism at large. The book is very well designed, and is full of colour photographs of bands, flyers, zines, and more. I know this is a book that I will peruse often.

This is better than the Riot Grrrl film "Don't Need You" because this book also talks about the British Grrrls. I like Kathleen Hanna & Allison Wolf, but my favorite bands are the English ones. My favorite band coming out of the earth's core in the early 90's was Huggy Bear. They called out the revolution in a style and urgency than their American counterparts. Great read!!

Another perspective on a movement that still seems to shoot under the radar. A nice blend of first person information and the history of Riot Grrl. The name is taken from Bikini Kill's 1991 self released first album.
