OUGD601 Research: Riot Grrrl Zines

Riot Grrrl was an underground feminist punk movement that originated in the early 1990s. It was a subculture movement that combined feminism and punk style and politics. It's often associated with third-wave feminism, and is often seen as the starting point of it. It has been described as a musical genre associated with the punk scene serving as an inspiration for a musical movement where women could express themselves in the same way that men had been doing for several years.

This particular publication was entitled 'Girl Germs' and was created by Allison Wolfe and Molly Neuman, who were both members of the band Bratmobile. The black and white photocopied style was used through-out a lot of the Riot Grrrl zines, making all of the publications fit a particular style which is really interesting to look at collectively.
