“Kathleen’s support for aspiring young female writers and musicians cannot be overstated. She was the riot grrrl movement’s big sister, muse, and fairy godmother. Bikini Kill wasn’t exactly raking in a ton of money, but she still bought zines from riot grrrls all over the world.”
This is a wonderful interview from almost twenty years ago with Bikini Kill’s Kathleen Hanna. Riot Grrrrl-ism is alive and well, still. There’s just too much good stuff in this to discuss. What a refreshing voice. Favorite question: “what is your favorite musical instrument?”
Kathleen: my mouth.
