A grassroots third wave feminist movement deeply connected to the punk rock scene in the early and mid 1990’s. Mostly youth oriented, riot grrrl was neither an organization or a specific thought, but instead thrived on non hierarchal “chapters” set up across America and parts of Europe connecting mostly young women with music, a thriving zine scene , and direct political action.
there is no one specific example of riot grrrl, in fact the best example is contrasting different people who associated themselves with the movement.

a feminist, who can rock out, have fun, and doesn't give a shit what any one else says.
at the havoc concert front row was a riot grrrl, she also has her own band, and has never let a guy tell her what to do.

Movement/organization of empowered womyn (and occassionally men) dedicated to expressing radical, grassroots feminism through art and activism. Spotlighted in the media around the time the punk band Bikini Kill was at the height of their powers.

it's basically the feminism on the punk scene. Womens that know how to fight for their rights and for the equality between men and women. the lyrics of this moviment always talk about woman rights and how they are against domestic violence. The best genre/moviment that could ever exists!!!
Riot Grrrl bands: Ex-Girl, Pussycat Trash, Le Tigre, Bikini Kill, Voodoo Dolls, Huggy Bear, The Butchies,...

riot grrrl is a movement of diverse grrrls and women who are dedicated to making women's and grrrls voices heard. we share art, music and ideas. we make zines, teach each other skills, create our own way of doing things. based in do-it-yourself and punk, riot grrrl is about empowering yourself to make your own decisions. define riot grrrl for yourself. what does it mean for you to be a tough kickass grrrl? what does it mean to you to play as hard as the boys?
some examples of riot grrrl are: courtney love, kathleen hanna, single mothers, dykes, sluts, badgirls, getting in the pit, grrrls who talk about rape, zinester grrrls

Feminist punk-rock movement based on DIY zines and clothes. Started by 'Bikini Kill'. Also dominated by the 'kinderwhore' look originally vomitted by Kat Bjelland and Courtney Love when they were still in 'Sugar Babylon' (also with Jennifer Finch of later L7) All three then started their own bands which are probably the most famous grrrl band after Bikini Kill (Hole, Babes in Toyland and L7). Teen girls would go to concerts with words like "slut" or "rape" scrawled over their bodies on lipstick.
"If you treat a girl like a dog, she is going to piss on you"
A quote from Courtney Love, original Riot Grrrl.
Fuck you, Courtney haters.
Grow up and get over the Kurt thing.
