Cinderella's Big Score
Women of the Punk and Indie UndergroundBook - 2005
Raha focuses on the United States and England in the 70s and 80s, and illuminates how the seminal women of this time shaped the female rockers of the 90s and today. Groups profiled range from The Runaways, The Slits, and The Plasmatics to L7, Sleater-Kinney, and Le Tigre. The book includes women not often featured in "women in rock" titles, such as Exene Cervenka of X, Eve Libertine and Joy de Vivre of Crass, and Poison Ivy Rorschach of the Cramps. Includes rare interviews and more than forty B&W photos.

Cinderella's Big Score celebrates the contributions of punk's oft-overlooked female artists, explores the latent--and not so latent--sexism of indie rock, and tells the story of how these women created spaces for themselves in a sometimes limited or exclusionary environment.
