And to round out our original Riot Grrls for the month I have thrown in a few more lesser known bands into the mix.
I found this great quote that I think is perfect for today. It comes from A Girl's Guide to Taking over the World: Writings from Ann Magnuson of Bongwater:
(And I might add that those girls were killed as martyrs for their thoughts and beliefs, which makes it a difficult role model to sell.)
"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."
