Girl gand undergroundDeadline: May 31st, 2010

THE INTERNATIONAL GIRL GANG UNDERGROUND compilation zine aims to document and dissect how Riot Grrrl's legacy has manifested twenty years later, as well as provide guidance for those who want to transform "revolution girl style now!" into "REVOLUTION GIRL STYLE FOREVER!"

If Riot Grrrl doesn't resonate with you or your cause, that's okay! We also want to know about all the do-it-yourself, grassroots music
movements currently being run by women/girls/trans/genderqueer/
queer folks today.


We want your submissions! Talking points include, but are not limited to:

ESSAYS ON...
  • What would a modern-day "Riot Grrrl manifesta" look like?
  • The successes and failures of Riot Grrrl and what we've learned from them
  • Your experience as an immigrant grrrl, genderf**king boy, revolutionary pornographer, Muslimah punk, working class queer, etc

REPORTS ON...
  • What was your experience as a Riot Grrrl in the '90s?
  • What's going on in your community that supports feminist & queer DIY musicians today?
  • Scene reports from regional DIY music scenes that traditionally are lady- and queer-friendly (London, Berlin, NYC, or your town)
  • Individuals who are making a difference--musicians, activists, writers, whomever!
  • "Where are they now?" (Riot Grrrl edition)
HOW-TO...
  • "Get off the Internet and meet in the street"
  • Reclaim feminism for the 4th wave
  • Organize conferences, protests, benefits, etc
  • Combat the "dude-first" mentality of your music scene
  • Use new technologies to organize effectively
  • Start a band/go on tour/create a zine/etc
  • Create spaces for working class, POC, international and rural women and queers

BAND/ZINE/COLLECTIVE/ACTIVIST GROUP INFO...
  • We're creating a directory for the International Girl Gang Underground--send along info on your project to be included!

ART...
  • Print, digital, audio, video, whatever--so long as it's in an easily rendered format for a black & white zine or can be included on an accompanying CD-R for distribution, we want it!
