Mathilde CartonRiot Grrrl


“In 1990, Kathleen Hanna was 22 years old and wanted to fight. She was told that punk was a man’s game? That female artists are worthless? Hanna and her colleagues are fomenting a cultural and political revolution. From Seattle to Washington, from exhibitions to concerts, from festivals to fanzines, the riot grrrls federated the disenfranchised and invented a new way, creating a space where girls were finally heard and legitimate. Thirty years later, as the flagship groups Bikini Kill and Bratmobile return to the stage, Mathilde Carton shows that these furious and touching figures led, in the bosom of the underground, a fight whose echo paved the way for the Spice Girls, Alanis Morissette, Fiona Apple and even Beyoncé or Miley Cyrus.”
