Nomination: The Riot Grrrl Collection

ImageDarms, Lisa.  The Riot Grrrl Collection.  2013.  361p.  Feminist Press, $34.95 (978-1-558-61822-0).  Gr. 8-up. [kpr]

Riot grrrl (1989-1996) sought to unify girls, encouraged them to start bands and write zines, and accept individual girl’s differences.  While not representative of the entire movement, this collection brings together flyers, zines and letters which show the beginning, evolution, and decline of riot grrrl, and represents the perspectives of those who felt included in the mantra “Revolution Grrrl Style Now” and those who did not.
