Riot grrrl was a big part of my life from 1994 to 1998. I published a fanzine called Suburbia, was a member of a riot grrrl chapter, co-organized the Bay Area Girl Convention in 1997, and generally was immersed in that world. The message of empowerment, sisterhood and resistance championed by Riot Grrrl had a profound effect on me in my middle and high school years, and I’m so grateful that I had that experience. This mix is a collection of records and releases I assembled during that time.
