In this new age, two gangs are pitted against each other in a brutal war for territory, resources and survival. Riot Girls are often accused of being separatists: they want to form a life away from men and invent "girl culture". One major argument is that the movement focuses on middle-class white women, alienating other kinds of women. “Riot grrrl is because we girls want to create mediums that speak to us. Because every time we pick up a pen, or an instrument, or get anything done, we are creating the revolution. We are the. Riot Girl. I also take requests for songs but they have to be rock, punk rock, punk pop,or anything with metal.
The Riot Grrrl movement encouraged females to become more involved in the male-dominated punk scene. While punk is primarily male-dominated, many women took part in the early punk scene.
The increasing awareness led to the creation of local Riot Grrrl weekly meeting that eventually turned into national conventions.
Although Riot Grrrl emerged in Washington, D. However, zines served as a place to discuss issues that were considered taboo in mainstream culture such as rape, incest, and eating disorders.
Zines allowed women to form connections with other women that shared similar ideas and experiences and ultimately created a community Schilt In Washington D.
The first major Riot Grrrl event occurred in August at the International Pop Underground Convention in Washington, D.
Approximately two years after the introduction of Riot Grrrl zines, a small Riot Grrrl network formed which spread to New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Richmond.

I learned a lot from that, way more maybe than from 'male' punk rock. He once said, "The future of rock belongs to women. Molly Neuman once summarized: "We're not anti-boy, we're pro-girl.
Influenced heavily by DIY culture , most bands' presentation subverted traditional or classically trained 'musicianship' in favor of raw, primitive, avant - lo-fi passion and fiercely deliberate amateurism: an idea growing rapidly in popularity, especially in the Olympia music scene , with bands like Beat Happening coining the slogans: "Learn how to NOT play your instrument" and "hey, you don't have to sound like the flavor of the month, all you have to do is sound like yourselves" [ citation needed ] , arguing that traditional musical skill doesn't ultimately matter and should always be subservient to the passion, the fun and ideas in their music.
These indie-punk bands and riot grrrl bands in particular were often ridiculed for "not being able to play their instruments", but fans are quick to counter that identical criticisms were often faced by the first-wave of punk rock bands in the s, and that this DIY garage amateurism "play just 'cause you wanna, no matter what" attitude was one of the most appealing and liberating aspects of both movements.
As media attention increasingly focused on grunge and alternative rock in the early nineties, the term "Riot Grrrl" was often used as a catchall for female-fronted bands and applied to less political alternative rock acts.
While many of these female-centric or all-women rock bands such as Hole , 7 Year Bitch , Babes in Toyland , the Breeders , the Gits , Lunachicks , Liz Phair , Veruca Salt , and L7 shared similar DIY tactics and feminist ideologies with the riot grrrl movement, not all of these bands or musicians self-identified with the riot grrrl label.
To their chagrin, in riot grrrls found themselves in the media spotlight gracing magazines from Seventeen to Newsweek. To ease tension, Kathleen Hanna called a "press block" for that year.
In an essay from January that had been included in the CD version of Bikini Kill's first two records, Tobi Vail responded to media misrepresentation of Bikini Kill and riot grrrl in general: [ citation needed ].
One huge misconception for instance that has been repeated over and over again in magazines we have never spoken to and also by those who believe these sources without checking things out themselves is that Bikini Kill is the definitive 'riot girl band' We are not in anyway 'leaders of' or authorities on the 'Riot Girl' movement.
In fact, as individuals we have each had different experiences with, feelings on, opinions of and varying degrees of involvement with 'Riot Girl' and though we totally respect those who still feel that label is important and meaningful to them, we have never used that term to describe ourselves AS A BAND.
As individuals we respect and utilize and subscribe to a variety of different aesthetics, strategies, and beliefs, both political and punk-wise, some of which are probably considered 'riot girl.
Musician Sharon Cheslow stated in EMP's Riot Grrrl Retrospective documentary:. There were a lot of very important ideas that I think the mainstream media couldn't handle, so it was easier to focus on the fact that these were girls who were wearing barrettes in their hair or writing 'slut' on their stomach.
I think it was deliberate that we were made to look like we were just ridiculous girls parading around in our underwear.
They refused to do serious interviews with us, they misprinted what we had to say, they would take our articles, and our fanzines, and our essays and take them out of context.
We wrote a lot about sexual abuse and sexual assault for teenagers and young women. I think those are really important concepts that the media never addressed.
Other female-fronted punk bands, such as Spitboy , were less comfortable with the childhood-centered issues of much of the riot grrrl aesthetic, but nonetheless dealt explicitly with feminist and related issues as well.
Lisa Rose Apramian , Not Bad for a Girl , explored some of these issues in interviews with many of the musicians in the riot grrrl scene at the time.
Other bands and artists associated with the United States riot grrrl movement include Slant 6 , Sta-Prest , Jenny Toomey , Tattle Tale , Jack Off Jill , the Need , Nomy Lamm , Lucid Nation , the Frumpies , Bangs , and the Quails ; and in the United Kingdom, Blood Sausage , Mambo Taxi , Voodoo Queens , Pussycat Trash , Frantic Spiders , Linus , Sister George and Lungleg.
Even as the Seattle-area rock scene came to international mainstream media attention, riot grrrl remained a willfully underground phenomenon.
Records, Simple Machines , Catcall, WIIIJA and Chainsaw Records. The movement also figured fairly prominently in cassette culture , with artists often starting their own DIY cassette labels by as basic and spartan a means as recording their music onto cheap off-the-shelf boom-boxes and passing the cassettes out to friends, seldom charging anything beyond the cost of the actual tapes themselves.
Riot grrrl's momentum was also hugely supported by an explosion of creativity in defiantly homemade cut and paste, xeroxed , collagey zines that covered a variety of feminist topics, frequently attempting to draw out the political implications of intensely personal experiences in a "privately public" space.
Grrrl zine editors are collectively engaged in forms of writing and writing instruction that challenge both dominant notions of the author as an individualized, bodiless space and notions of feminism as primarily an adult political project.
These zines were archived by zinewiki. When I think of how much benefit my teenage self could have gained from the multitude of zines that have proliferated over the past decade, I weep for all the lost potential.
Except for Joan of Arc and Anne Frank , the thoughts of teenage girls have rarely been taken seriously. Bands would often attempt to reappropriate derogatory phrases like "cunt", "bitch", "dyke", and " slut ", writing them proudly on their skin with lipstick or fat markers.
Kathleen Hanna was writing "slut" on her stomach at shows as early as , intentionally fusing feminist art and activist practices.
Many of the women involved with queercore were also interested in riot grrrl, and zines such as Chainsaw by Donna Dresch , Sister Nobody , Jane Gets A Divorce and I heart Amy Carter by Tammy Rae Carland embody both movements.
There were also national conventions like in Washington, D. Starting during the fall of , the "Riot Grrrl Collection" has been housed at New York University 's Fales Library and Special Collections, as "The Fales Riot Grrrl Collection".
The collection's primary mandate is "to collect unique materials that provide documentation of the creative process of individuals and the chronology of the [Riot Grrrl] movement overall".
The collection is the brainchild of Lisa Darms, Senior Archivist at the Fales Library. According to Jenna Freedman, a librarian who maintains a zine collection at Barnard College , "It's just essential to preserve the activist voices in their own unmediated work, especially because of the media blackout that they called for".
Kathleen Hanna, while understanding no collection can replicate the concert experience, feels the collection is a safe place that will be "free from feminist erasure".
The "Riot Grrrl" movement has received criticism for not being inclusive enough. Riot Girls are often accused of being separatists : they want to form a life away from men and invent "girl culture".
In , Ramdasha Bikceem wrote in her zine, Gunk ,. Riot grrrl calls for change, but I question who it's including I see Riot Grrrl growing very closed to a very few i.
Musician Courtney Love has criticized the movement for being too doctrinaire and censorious:. Look, you've got these highly intelligent imperious girls, but who told them it was their undeniable American right not to be offended?
Being offended is part of being in the real world. I'm offended every time I see George Bush on TV! Some have suggested that, while riot grrrl bands worked to ensure their shows were safe spaces in which women could find solidarity and create their own subculture, some higher-profile riot grrrl bands participated in the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival , a trans-exclusionary events that had a " womyn-born womyn " policy.
Former members of Le Tigre did see protests at their shows for having participated in the festival in Additionally, JD Samson , another former member of Le Tigre, is a proponent of gender fluidity.
