"Offers revelations alongside an invigorating recap of Hanna's influential career. --John Defore, Hollywood Reporter
Top Customer Reviews
Not only did she have her own band, she also co-found the 'Riot Grrrl' revolution. These were bands with so much to say, and also, they were produced by rocker Joan Jett. Strong, angry, decisive, and thematic with a commanding presence, the Riot Grrrl's movement took the Punk scene with its own fury. Kathleen had made some very influential friends in Kurt Cobain and also the band 'Sonic Youth', among many others during her time in both ventures.
Before 'Bikini Kill' eventually broke up, Kathleen helped to make fanzines which explained their reasoning for feelings that they each had. This was done to go into 'Riot Grrrl' with a "Manifesto", which they named it.Read more ›
EDIT May 2014: Life is about constant change and dealing with people and their hypocrisy. I recently found out about Kathleen's involvement with the Michigan Womyn's Festival and their transphobic policy. They only allow natural born women in the festival which is their right, but they are alienating a lot of people by it. What really gets me about all of this is that Kathleen who has made a career of fighting for everyone's rights is completely silent about the topic. This is someone who has rallied against institutionalized racism, classism, sexism and homophobia. Her former band had a trans person in it. Yet when the trans community has reached out to her to apologize for her part in the festival to at least address her feelings, Kathleen pretends it is a non issue. She has ignored all emails and protests. I am not well versed in trans issues, but I know what a hypocrite is...I'm looking at you Ms. Hanna!
