From the Back of the Room Screening with Vivien Goldman
Berklee Media Lab

Although it is often credited with spurring the '"third wave" of feminism, Riot Grrrl seemed to many to be a blip in the media. The movement paved the way for the more mainstream "girl power" phenomenon, but was forgotten by many until recently. This documentary chronicles the past 30 years of female involvement in DIY punk and has interviews with more than 30 women from across the country, ages 17 to 40. Race, gender, sexuality, motherhood, class, and activism are all addressed in this film, giving a more complete picture of how these women participate in the DIY community and how it affects their daily lives.
Join us for this film screening, followed by a conversation with "professor of punk" Vivien Goldman.
