see also tiger beatdown where sady doyle provides tons of background info on this. and you should prolly just read her reporting in general anyways.
see also hr3 at the government legislation tracking site.
just came across this righteous interview with kathleen hanna of bikini kill and le tigre. she’s donating some of her personal materials to nyu’s fales library. as she says on her blog…
My papers will become a small part of a larger Riot Grrrl Archive that will allow scholars to access the good, the bad and the ugly as related to 90’s punk rock feminism. It is my secret dream that people who were actually involved will use the collection as a jump off point to write their own books, make their own documentaries etc…I feel pretty giddy about the whole thing.
pretty awesome! i’m stoked about this because one of the main reasons i got into the library/archival arts was my interest in documenting, preserving, and archiving traditionally undocumented communities, art, movements, etc. and i’m way glad that this is starting to happen at more and more repositories.
the video talks about role modelness, feminism, some of her experiences playing with bikini kill, etc…
ps. you should also check out the online bikini kill archive blog.
