So I’ve done a decent amount of shite recently. I graduated high school, I got my first tattoo, and I got drunk as hell and went night swimming with my best friends. Summer so far has been pretty fun.

HAPPY RIOT GRRRL DAY 2015!

After my recent post about  Boston mayor declares April 9 ‘Riot Grrrl Day’ in honor of Kathleen Hanna, a reader commented on issues of racism and exclusion in the original movement, which Kathleen Hanna addresses in this interview.

As she says in that quote,  “At the same time, when people say riot grrrl was all white, that’s not true. In places like New York and California, that definitely was not the case. I don’t want to erase the women of color who were very much a part of shaping the identity of riot grrrl, and who questioned riot grrrl as a very white movement, and in that way shaped it, because clearly they cared enough to critique it.”

Feminist punks, here are more Riot GRRRL posts on Profeminist (all the pictures above are from earlier posts): http://profeminist.tumblr.com/tagged/riot-grrrl
