International Girl Gang Underground

Kathleen Hanna mentioned this great site about Riot Grrrl and its effect at the MoMA the other night.

Here’s its mission statement: THE INTERNATIONAL GIRL GANG UNDERGROUND compilation zine is a collection of stories, artwork, and critical work about DIY feminist cultural production and punk rock today, twenty years after the riot grrrl movement, and in the wake of its legacy.

They’re doing some great reflections on and deconstruction of ’90s feminism and zine culture.

When I was sixteen and reading zines I’d found on the floor of bookstores in NYC and carrying them around talisman-like through my high school hallways, I had NO IDEA other people all over the country were doing the same thing. I wish I’d know that then, but failing that it’s nice to know now.
