F*CK THE PATRIARCHY
Today is the Amber Rose Slut Walk so we thought it'd be appropriate to make a playlist to get us hyped up! This playlist consists of female punk bands and musicians known as Riot Grrrls.
Riot Grrrls were an underground feminist punk movement in the early 90's. They opposed "bro culture" in the music scene and talked about gender, race, sexuality, and equality issues. Those issues are, unfortunately, still very present in the music scene and, generally, in life for women.
The Slut Walk is an event working towards gender equality, ending rape culture, victim blaming, slut and body shaming and other social injustice issues.
This event is both a bummer and exciting at the same time. I'm feeling a little mad that we're still fighting and bringing awareness to these issues. It's the same way I felt about the march back in January .
