“Many people have the impression that the Riot Grrrl movement in the mid-90s
was the end-all, be-all of female involvement in DIY punk. This is
definitely not the case! Plenty of amazing ladies prior to this era
paved the way for it, and plenty of amazing ladies continue to help keep
DIY together today. This documentary chronicles the past 30 years of
female involvement in DIY punk, and has interviews with over 30 women
from across the country, ages 17 to 40. Race, gender, sexuality,
motherhood, class, and activism are all addressed in this film, giving a
more complete picture of how these women participate in the DIY
community, and how it affects their daily lives.” – www.fromthebackoftheroom.com
