About the Author

Born in London, Vivien Goldman has been a music journalist for more than forty years and was the trusted chronicler of Bob Marley and Fela Kuti. She was a member of the new-wave bands Chantage and The Flying Lizards; Resolutionary, a retrospective compilation album of her work, was released in 2016. She is an adjunct professor teaching Punk, Afrobeat, and Reggae at New York University, where the Vivien Goldman Punk and Reggae Collection is archived in the Fales Library. A former documentarian, her five previous books include The Book of Exodus: The Making and Meaning of Bob Marley and the Wailers’ Album of the Century. Goldman co-wrote the book for Cherchez La Femme, the Kid Creole musical that premiered at the La Mama Theatre in NYC in 2016.

"This book should restore Goldman's place in the rock-crit firmament just as she sets out to give punk's women their long-denied dues." ― The Guardian Published On: 2019-05-13

"Revelatory…[Revenge of the She-Punks] feels like an exhilirating conversation with the coolest aunt you never had, as she leaps from one passion to the next." ― Rolling Stone Published On: 2019-05-30

"Goldman…tells the fascinating tale of how feminist punk evolved…It’s a decades-long story full of radical women making their own noise." ― Rolling Stone, "Best Music Books of 2019" Published On: 2020-01-01

"While Goldman jumps around, hopping from band to band, she places the female musical foment within the critical context of feminist theory and the cultural context of society’s upheaval...Known as the 'Punk Professor' as an adjunct at NYU, Goldman extends her authority here." ― Kirkus Published On: 2019-02-03

"[Revenge of the She-Punks] doesn't just retell the story of punk with an added woman or two; it centers the relationships between gender and the genre, showing how, through the right lens, the story of punk is a story about women's ingenuity and power." ― NPR Published On: 2019-05-07

"Revenge of the She-Punks is an engaging and politically charged exploration of women in music looking to the past, present, and future." ― Bust Magazine Published On: 2019-05-08

"Riotously entertaining…a vibrant and inspiring introduction to feminist music history that invites more scholarship and music making." ― Foreword Reviews Published On: 2019-05-01

"A distinctive look at [punk]…For fans of punk as well as a wider audience of music lovers, feminists, and social historians curious about the genre and its far-reaching influence." ― Library Journal Published On: 2019-03-01

"Alongside musician interviews with the likes of Kathleen Hanna and Patti smith, the engrossing read leans on the unmatchable source of Goldman herself, who participated in punk's genesis as editor of London weekly Sounds." ― Austin Chronicle Published On: 2019-04-26

"Goldman offers a seamless mix of personal memoir, historical detail, direct interviews with the musicians, and her own academic analysis…[a] seriously excellent treatise. Revenge of the She-Punks is not to be missed." ― PopMatters Published On: 2019-05-21 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
