Riot Grrrl Day in Boston

Today, 9 April 2015, is officially Riot Grrrl Day in Boston, Massachusetts—in honor of original riot grrrl Kathleen Hanna. Hanna—who began the “girls to the front” movement at punk shows—has long been a key player in the hardcore-punk feminist realm, and continues to be an icon far beyond. Boston Mayor, Marty Walsh, signed the proclamation to coincide with Hanna’s visit to the city, where she will lecture and perform at the Wilbur Theatre.
