The Riot Grrrl Manifesto!

(Published in 1991 in the second Bikini kill zine)

*Watch Kathleen Hanna reading the RG Manifesto here! 

*Riot Grrrl day proclamation

That’s what we mean by girl culture. There’s a whole girl culture that exists when you’re little. There girls have their own scene. And it always gets totally fucked up when girls start dating boys. Like two of them like the same guy. Or they just start dating guys and that becomes their life. Then they get married and that’s traditionally how women get into these situations where they are totally separated from each other in these domestic spheres. What we want to say is, ‘no, that’s not happening to us. This is girl culture and these are our rituals’.
