Playlist: Feminist Punk
Feminist Punk is a movement that is purely and simply dedicated to women seeking agency. No filters - there is nothing token or cute about it. Laura Kebby takes you on a musical journey of femme power since the 1970s in our latest Spotify playlist. She writes,
Punk, particularly feminist punk, is about so much more than just the music. It’s a force, an energy, a passionate call to arms. But most importantly, feminist punk, especially the riot grrrl movement of the 90s, provided a platform for a fierce group of women to stand up, speak out, and be the voice for the girls who were once stuck in the shadows at the back of the rock show. So this one’s for the girls at the front, in the name of punk and whatever makes you a modern girl.
