Beth Ditto remembers riot grrrl

Gossip frontwoman BDitty has contributed her thoughts on riot grrrl inspiration to a new book, Riot Grrrl Revolution: Revolution Girl Style Now. Her intro to the informative and entertaining herstory has a suggestion for the age old question “Beatles or the Stones?” Beth asks that you counter it with, “Heavens to Betsy or Bratmobile?”

The rest of the book is filled with priceless mementos of the girl-positive, queer-positive years which allowed artists like the Gossip to become inspired and accessible. Photographs, copies of old zine pages and essays, as well as quotes from riot grrrls who were deep in the trenches make this book a must have for young women of today who are DIY and GAY.
