    Did not expect both fat rep and taking white feminism to task would be such huge parts of this book but I am certainly not mad about it I'd also expected music to be central to it but the 90s cultural aspect actually comes most strongly from zines which I found surprisingly enjoyable to read considering they weren't something I was into in

The year is 1994 and alternative is in But not for alternative girl Tabitha Denton; she hates her life She is uninterested in boys lonely and sidelined by former friends at her suburban high school When she picks up a zine at a punk concert she finds an escape an advertisement for. Author s Note including trigger warnings Riot Grrrl was a moment in time that represented what being young and female meant within the greater context of our society It also helped a lot of us to understand what was possible Many young women knew that even though significant strides had been made for gender and racial euality the world was far from eual In the early 1990s a group of socially aware young women created some would argue that they stumbled upon a feminist movement they dubbed Riot Grrrl When I starting writing Grrrls on the Side than a year ago the world was a different place for women As we approached the 2016 election it seemed we were on the cusp of having our first female president Progress had been made Our voices were being heard I had nostalgia for Riot Grrrl The moment felt ripe for a book that reflected on how far we ve come as feminists and the role that young women and girls have played in that journey Now I believe this book may have a different purpose I sincerely hope Grrrls serves as a reminder of the power that women carry within ourselves of the joy kindness and ferocity we bring to everything we do and of the hope that it can and will get better because we have each otherWith the historic Women s March on Washington in January 2017 I once again saw the power of women and girls to influence change on a grand scale We still have a long way to go but there are always other women out there fighting the good fight who will stand up and have your back who will call you out on your crap and who will remind you that you are not alone So thank you so much for giving Grrrls on the Side a chance Tabitha s story represents a journey that a lot of young women take on their path to finding their place in the world and I believe that is an important message for young adults Unfortunately for one in six American women that journey is often derailed by sexual assault So it would be impossible to talk about feminism and Riot Grrrl without addressing that very real and important issue While there are no specific depictions of rape in my novel there is discussion of the rape of an underage girl There is also one scene where a character experiences unwanted kissing and touching If you think this might be harmful or triggering to you please feel free to give this book a pass Or if you d like to know what page numbers to skip or want to contact me for details please visit my website at wwwcarriepackcom

A Riot Grrrl meet upAt the meeting Tabitha finds girls who are like her and a place to belong But just as Tabitha is settling in with her new friends and beginning to think she understands herself eighteen year old Jackie Hardwick walks into a meeting and changes her world forever. based on the premise of an ff relationship in the nineties and riot grrrl punk band i thought i was going to really enjoy this book but it only took the very first line for me to realise that our relationship might be less than harmonious Heather s got her stupid flannel shirt tied around her stupid tiny waist I don t know if I m annoyed she looks cuter like that than I do or if it s because I know she s only wearing it as a fashion statement followed a few sentences later by They only care about that stuff so they can meet boys and go shopping a less than promising start to a self declared feminist novel however there were some really good feminist messages in here despite a bit of wobbliness unfortunately i felt that the message dominated everything else i m a feminist and i m a very political person and i like having political messages in books but the message should not be the driving force of the novel which seemed like it here the plot was shaped around the message and seemed almost to take a backseat there was nothing that really gripped me about the plot or the characters who seemed rather flat and just like mouthpieces for various opinions there was definitely potential but i don t think the plot and characters were rounded enough for that potential to be carried out i don t have any feminist novels i would recommend in its stead so if you do then drop me a comment because i d like to read one
