How Are You Celebrating “Riot Grrrl Day”?
The city of Boston has now done something cool for probably like, the first time ever. Mayor Marty Walsh has declared today Thursday, April 9 as “Riot Grrrl” day in honor of Bikini Kill founder and cultural icon, Kathleen Hanna. Walsh said, “The riot grrrl philosophy has never felt more relevant, with misogyny still rampant in many cultural spaces.”
Hanna will be in Boston to speak at the Wilbur theatre on “art, music, writing, trends, women and more”. Watching a speech is one way to celebrate—but if you’re like us, you’ll want a drink and a dance to go along with that. Bump these while shotgunning a beer (or some equally celebratory riual) in honor of all the bad ass ladies around the world today.
And of course, bump this too. Riot Grrrl or not, I think this video delivers an appropriate sentiment for today’s holiday.
