Punk Women: 40 Years of Musicians Who Built Punk Rock

by David A. Ensminger (Editor) - £14.99  Microcosm Publishing (2021)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781621065517 | ISBN 10: 1621065510

Interviews with and photos of canonical rockers.
 
In this far-reaching anthology, David Ensminger delves underground to explore the oft overlooked community of badass women who shaped the punk scene.
 
There is a common thread of women being excluded and gatekept from the hardcore music scene but this anthology challenges that notion and shows that women have still been able to overcome, kick ass, and shred alongside the best of them. Biographies, interviews, band anecdotes, and never-before-published photos showcase the talent and artistry of bands like Bikini Kill, The Guttersluts, Bratmobile, Spitboy, the Germs, The Slits, and dozens more.
 
Through its intimate aesthetic analysis and raw zine-like presentation, this is an essential resource for anyone looking to discover, rediscover, and cherish punk history.
 
Includes a foreword by Katy Otto of Trophy Wife.
