Girls to the Front is the epic, definitive history of the Riot Grrrl movement - the radical feminist punk uprising that exploded into the public eye in the 1990s, altering America's gender landscape forever. Author Sara Marcus, a music and politics writer for Time Out New York, Slate.com, Pos, and Heeb magazine, interweaves research, interviews, and her own memories as a Riot Grrrl front-liner. Her passionate, sophisticated narrative brilliantly conveys the story of punk bands like Bikini Kill, Bratmobile, and Heavens to Betsy - as well as successors like Sleater-Kinney, Partyline, and Kathleen Hanna's Le Tigre - and their effect on today's culture.

"[A] compelling history...Marcus has done a commendable job of telling the little-known history of an important social and cultural movement." ( Booklist, starred review)
