Beschreibung

Riot grrrls, punk feminists most well-known for their girl power activism and message, used punk ideologies and the literacy practice of zine-ing to create radical feminist sites of resistance.


Riot grrrls, punk feminists best known for their girl power activism and message, used punk ideologies and the literacy practice of zine-ing to create radical feminist sites of resistance. In what ways did zines document feminism and activism of the 1990s? How did riot grrrls use punk ideologies to participate in DIY sites?

In Writing a Riot: Riot Grrl Zines and Feminist Rhetorics, Buchanan argues that zines are a form of literacy participation used to document personal, social, and political values within punk. She examines zine studies as an academic field, how riot grrrls used zines to promote punk feminism, and the ways riot grrrl zines dealt with social justice issues of rape and race. Writing a Riot is the first full-length book that examines riot grrrl zines and their role in documenting feminist history.

Zusammenfassung
"One of the most radical aspects of zines is how personal they are, in both the narrative writing and the physical construction. Rebekah J. Buchanan pays tribute to this aspect by sharing with us her personal journey through the punk scene and zine creation, while situating zines in their rightful place in historical memory. By weaving personal narrative and scholarship together to discuss the importance of young women and teens in social justice movements, Buchanan proves that zines were and still are an accessible entryway into sites of resistance where girls/grrrls can lead the revolution." -Dawn Stahura, Research and Instruction Librarian, Simmons College, and zinester
