Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive history of Riot Grrrl--the radical feminist uprising that exploded into the public eye in the 1990s and included incendiary punk bands Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy, and Huggy Bear.

"We want a revolution girl style now!"
Though chronically ignored, misunderstood or simply despised in its heyday, the politics and the music of the 90s riot grrrl movement remains influential and inspiring. I recently saw the Kathleen Hanna doc. "The Punk Singer," which led me to this important book which chronicles the music, culture and politics of the movement, which was never as homogeneous as outsiders painted it. If nothing else, the hostility, especially the polarizing/galvanizing Bikini Kill, brought out how little had changed in gender relations, esp. in the hyper-masculine rock world. These stories will lead you to some great music and unfortunately this is missing a comprehensive discography. I would also recommend "Cinderella's Big Score," "She's a Rebel" and "Love Rock Revolution."
