“I wanted to make something that I wanted to hear that I wasn’t hearing.”

Happy Moxie Monthly! As release date approaches, we’d like to honor a Moxie girl central to our story: Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill! Instrumental in the beginning of third wave feminism and the inclusion of women in punk, her title of Moxie girl is well deserved. And while most know her iconic songs and what she stands for, we’d like to dig a little deeper and show you how she got where she is today.

Kathleen Hanna was born in Portland, but spent much of her early life constantly on the move. At age 9, she first became interested in feminism when her mother started attending rallies and reading feminist publications. The two quickly bonded over feminism, her mother checking out feminist literature like The Feminine Mystique and subscribing to Ms. Magazine, and young Hanna cutting up those magazines to make her own feminist posters and collages. The two had to hide their new interest from Hanna’s disapproving father until the divorce.

Her passion grew every year, and she began to express her experiences and frustrations with sexism in other mediums. In college, she and a friend set up a photography exhibit dealing with subjects like sexism and AIDS; it was promptly taken down by the school, and Hanna cites this act of censorship as her first foray into activism. She also got into spoken-word poetry, but finally switched to music after a discussion with feminist writer Kathy Acker, who admired Hanna’s desire to express herself but noted that she’d be better off in the music scene where she’d have more listeners.

She started and played in many bands, including Amy Carter, The Julie Ruin, Viva Knievel, and finally, Bikini Kill, which became a staple of the Olympia music scene in the 90s. She and her band emphasized political action, awareness, and empowerment of women. Her songs, zines, and ‘girls to the front’ ethos not only encouraged women to enjoy punk, but helped keep them safe while they were doing so, out of dangerous mosh pits and safe from harassers.

Looking back, Hanna acknowledges criticisms of the riot grrrl movement as a largely white, cis, and middle class movement and regrets it was not more inclusive. She looks forward to new projects, like the People of Color Zine Project, that aim to make riot grrrl intersectional and accessible to all.

And although that about sums her up, we can’t get enough of Kathleen Hanna! So before we go, here are 5 fun facts about this riot grrrl:


  1. She invented the title of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Referring to the deoderant, Hanna scrawled “Kurt smells like teen spirit” on his wall.
  2. She battled Lyme disease. The chronic illness made it difficult & even impossible to play some days, but she was pronounced Lyme free 2015.
  3. She was a hostess at a gay bar. Her signature hostess songs were The Clash’s Should I Stay or Should I Go & Kool and the Gang’s Celebration.
  4. The biggest feminist issue to her is poverty “because if you’re just trying to put food on the table, you’re not part of the conversation.”
  5. She’s still making music! Julie Ruin reunited and released an album, Hit Reset, just last year.

Feminist YA? Yes I’m always here for that.

Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu (September 19, 2017)

Vivian Carter is fed up. Fed up with a school administration at her small-town Texas high school that thinks the football team can do no wrong. Fed up with sexist dress codes, hallway harassment, and gross comments from guys during class. But most of all, Viv Carter is fed up with always following the rules.

Viv’s mom was a tough-as-nails, punk rock Riot Grrrl in the ‘90s, and now Viv takes a page from her mother’s past and creates a feminist zine that she distributes anonymously to her classmates. She’s just blowing off steam, but other girls respond. As Viv forges friendships with other young women across the divides of cliques and popularity rankings, she realizes that what she has started is nothing short of a girl revolution.

some Moxie concept art from twitter. basically it’s like SU’s fusion but there’s no gay dancing, you gotta kill another unfused inkling to completely control their ability and it’s permanent

Moxie! What is it?

It’s a film about this disgruntled police officer,

Who moves in with this computer technician,

And they get along okay…

Some drama, angst, and general shit happens (I shan’t spoil), but I promise they will get their happy ending.

Inspired by the queerbaiting shitshow that was Sherlock season 4, Moxie delivers the gay and it delivers it with passive aggressive tea symbolism and explicitly queer characters. Suck it, Mofftiss.

This is a project being made by a member of the Sherlock fandom and TJLC community, aka me: The @unrelentinghost of @thesherlockexperiment podcast.

This is a bit different from other fanwork, since it’s technically my own intellectual property, but like I said: It’s very Sherlock inspired. So we’re talking a detective and her blogger computer technician, just mates sharing a flat for convenience, confused sexual and romantic tension, obnoxious but entertaining villain, awesome fisticuffs, a damsel in distress trope… Need I say more?

As a TJLCer, I was compelled to chuck in a lot of visual symbolism and codes for my fellows to analyze as they please. It all points to gaytown, of course, but you knew that already since I’ve promised to do what the Beebs couldn’t (or wouldn’t).

Follow @moxieshortfilm for updates on the project if you’re interested. The film is coming out in late June.

And if you are actually interested, consider reblogging :)

Thanks for reading. Here’s a treat.
