Happy Riot Grrrl Day!
Today was declared "Riot Grrrl Day" by the city of Boston, and it's worth celebrating everywhere. Why? The Proclamation of Riot Grrrl Days says it best: “Because: Our young women can’t be what they can’t see. Girls need to see other girls picking up drumsticks, basses and microphones. They need to see other girls picking up paintbrushes and pens, and telling their stories loudly. Because: the next Kathleen Hanna may be a young girl in a Boston bedroom creating feminist art by herself, fearful that she has no community to belong to. Thanks to Mayor Marty Walsh and Chief of Policy/Rock Superheroine Joyce Linehan for amplifying women's voices.
