Since she first started making music with Bikini Kill in 1991, Kathleen Hanna has been a beacon of feminist culture, showing everyone the explosive possibilities of combining art with politics. Now, to coincide with The Feminist Press’ release of The Riot Grrl Collection, a compendium of ‘zines, posters, and other memorabilia of the radical punk rock feminist movement, Hanna has partnered with fashion site VFILES to create a riot grrl themed capsule collection. Staying true to Hanna’s civic-minded roots, the proceeds will benefit the Girls Rock Camp Alliance, a non-profit organization whose mission is to “help girls build self-esteem and find their voices through unique programming that combines music education and performance, empowerment and social justice workshops, positive role models, and collaboration and leadership skill building.” Awesome!
The collection contains a dress modeled off Hanna’s iconic “KILL ME” outfit, Bikini Kill chapstick and some signed posters from back in the day. And with price points from $10-$175, you can contribute a little or a lot. Don’t forget to turn up “Rebel Girl” real loud as you click through the items.
And as a special bonus, here’s our friend Kathleen reading the Riot Grrl Manifesto, which is just as inspiring today as it was when she first wrote it. Revolution girl style now!
