Girls to the Front: The True Story of the Riot Grrrl Revolution by Sara Marcus (book review)

Book Description

Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive history of Riot Grrrl—the radical feminist uprising that exploded into the public eye in the 1990s and included incendiary punk bands Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy, and Huggy Bear. A dynamic chronicle not just a movement but an era, this is the story of a group of pissed—off girls with no patience for sexism and no intention of keeping quiet.

My Review

This is a breathtaking book that speaks to a host of issues around modern feminism and what it means in lived, not academic, terms, in and outside of punk rock . If you are into this kind of book then you will love this one. Very informative and highly recommended .

4 out of 5
