The Herstory of Riot Grrrl: Inspiring & Empowering

Lately, my love of Riot Grrrl, it’s history and influence on fashion has really taken a hold of me. It’s nice to get a fresh breath of air after breathing so much pollution from the mainstream media. I think of subcultural movements like Punk and the resulting Riot Grrrl to be pure in that they run parallel to mainstream fashion, taking what each person chooses but aren’t overwhelmed in trends and the like.

Anyway! Enough fashion/political ranting. I watched this documentary a few days ago and I think it’d be interesting to anyone that loves punk, history or even feminism. Or maybe someone like myself, that just needs a little inspiration (or empowerment).

  1. I hung out with a bunch of "riot girls" in high school (early 90s) and they were all little rich girls who would complain that their parents wouldn't buy them a 6th pair of Doc Martins. It was all about fashion to them and I think I got more out of listening to the music than they did…..

  2. by the time i was in high school (late 90s) there were like 2 of em. They were moneyed, smart, eccentric, and both went to art school later. they kind of had a lot of people fawning over them. they also knew where all the cool punk clubs were in the city. I hung out with them a few times…lol very expensive evenings. they were pretty cool though.
