GRITtv Interviews Kathleen Hanna

I love Kathleen Hanna and Bikini Kill. A lot. So when I saw this very recent interview with her, considering she doesn't do that many, I knew I had to share! She talks about zines v. blogging, the Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls, feminist leadership and...*sigh* she's just awesome.

Kathleen Hanna came into a music scene in the 90s that was angry, violent, and full of men. She and her bandmates in Bikini Kill, along with the rest of the riot grrrl movement, pushed back against that culture and helped usher in a new "wave" of feminism. After Bikini Kill, Hanna went on to make feminist dance music with Le Tigre and has kept pushing boundaries ever since. Recently, she donated her zine archive to NYU's Fales Library as part of its new Riot Grrrl collection. She joins Laura in studio to talk feminism, rock'n'roll, and why she's hopeful for the future.
