Following from our blog post about Kathleen donating her papers to an archive in New York, the nice folk at GRITtv just got in touch about an interview they recorded with the riot grrrl stalwart.

Check out the awesome clip out here

and also just found out about the Bikini Kill archive blog. Go contribute your memories!

"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."
