“For a moment Wave feminist like myself, women to front inspires splendidly the best way the iteration after mine soaked up the promise and the punishment of feminist consciousness....A richly relocating story.” —Village Voice author Vivian Gornick
Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive background of the insurrection Grrrl movement—the radical feminist punk rebellion that exploded into the general public eye within the Nineteen Nineties, changing America’s gender panorama ceaselessly. writer Sara Marcus, a track and politics author for Time Out New York, Slate.com, Pos, and Heeb journal, interweaves study, interviews, and her personal thoughts as a revolt Grrrl front-liner. Her passionate, refined narrative brilliantly conveys the tale of punk bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, Heavens to Betsy—as good as successors like Sleater-Kinney, Partyline, and Kathleen Hanna’s Le Tigre—and their influence on today’s tradition.
