"Riot grrrl is the gateway drug that girls use to find feminist history. I love love love this book--a snapshot of what riot grrrl was and could be."--Kathleen Hanna, musician, Bikini Kill

"What an experience-this book shows a movement being born and taking form, and how revolutionary ideas move from hand to hand. The Riot Grrrl Collection is alive with intimacy, passion, anger, and fun."--Sheila Heti, author of How Should a Person Be?

"The materials in this book are more important than ever. Riot grrrl shows us that feminism isn't synonymous with consumer empowerment. Passed person to person, riot grrrl culture advances a true revolution in which 'girl' qualities like candor and empathy are no longer trivialized and can re-make the world."--Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick

"The Riot Grrrl Collection preserves a vital history of feminism that will inspire scholars, artists, and activists alike."--Ann Cvetkovich, author of Depression: A Public Feeling

"Forget Andy Warhol and everyone being famous for 15 minutes. Because of riot grrrl we have new, exciting political movements every 15 minutes."--Vaginal Davis

"What zine-making taught me about writing: 1. shock yourself with honesty, 2. the truth is messy, 3. be brave like her. I use these riot grrrl skills every single day."--Miranda July, author of No One Belongs Here More Than You
