Anonymous asked: I'm doing a presentation on the Riot GRRRL movement for my women's studies class next week. Where can I get some good solid research on the whole movement? I was thinking of making the powerpoint look like an old zine XD I'm really excited to do this because NO ONE in my class even knew what the riot grrrl movement even is.

carnytrash: The punk rock group was found guilty on Friday of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred. The rockers laughed while the verdict was read, although they could face up to three years in prison. Outside the courthouse, about 1,000 of Pussy Riot supporters are chanting “Shame!” “Fascists!” and “Freedom to Pussy Riot!” In the rest of the world, they’ve been hailed as heroes; young...

glasstambourine asked: To that last ask: I would recommend L7 (recommended song to check out: Slide and Wargasm) or 7 Year Bitch (recommended song to check out: The History Of My Future). Not recessarily Riot Grrrl in the most typical sense, because Riot Grrrl is primarily more a punk sound, but these are all female bands that are super bad ass. Just thought I'd throw something out there.
Anonymous asked: About the question are there any riot grrrl bands as heavy as metal bands, I would say: My Ruin and Tura satana by Tairrie B. There is also all female metal band Kittie and pretty badass Shocker Stalin.
feministrocker asked: I just want to know, are there any riot grrrl bands that are as heavy as Metallica or Pantera? I've been trying to ask around, and nobody's yet given me an answer.

Anonymous asked: Even though I have been raised by a very feminist dad, my brother said today "Girls should dress properly, you shouldn't dress to show your ass and be sexy". Indeed, my brother is sexist. So I told him "I have every right to show my ass and it gives noone the right to touch it." And I thought of your blog right after I said it. <3 Susie
Anonymous asked: I was at a show and was the only girl moshing. Another girl pulled me aside and told me that I was going against everything Kathleen Hanna and Bikini Kill stood for. Is it really better for me to stand aside in silent protest of male-dominated mosh pits when what I really want to do is join in?

Anonymous asked: At school we had to like do a talk on an issue. The issue I chose was "Do women incite or cause rape if they are dressed like "sluts" I was obviously saying Hell No but I thought other people would be like weird about it and think I was strange that I was doing a talk on rape but they were genuinely interested in one of the facts I had and liked my talk. YAY ME :)
riotgirls asked: Hey! I found your tumblr recently and literally looked through every page! It's so inspiring and it made me so happy and proud to be a girl! I was wondering if you had the names of any other feminist/riot grrrl tumblrs?
hystericalbitchzine asked: Hi, we're a new feminist zine made by people from Bournemouth University, UK. Our zine is a reaction to being told we can't be angry feminists, or the patriarchy won't accept us- but there's so much to be angry about! If you could promote us to your followers, that would be fabulous, thanks :)

Anonymous asked: for the ask about riot grrl music, another good reason that rebel girl is a good song to use is that as it is being used for a presentation, it's a song where the message behind it is easy to understand. Whilst, perhaps some people might not find the messages in other songs to be as clear for whatever reason, the message in this strong comes across very strongly and passionately. Perhaps the...
