Sara Marcus - Girls To The Front
Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive history of the Riot Grrrl movement - the radical feminist punk uprising that exploded into the public eye in the 1990s, altering America’s gender landscape forever. Author Sara Marcus interweaves research, interviews, and her own memories as a Riot Grrrl front-liner. Her passionate, sophisticated narrative brilliantly conveys the story of punk bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy - as well as successors like Sleater-Kinney, Partyline, and Kathleen Hanna’s Le Tigre - and their effect on today’s culture.
“For a Second Wave feminist like myself, Girls to the Front evokes wonderfully the way the generation after mine soaked up the promise and the punishment of feminist consciousness.... A richly moving story” - Village Voice writer Vivian Gornick
