After Grrrl "Small Stories from Big Lives"
While pop artists now bank on transparent "performance feminism" and the media declares "Yay feminism, Riot Grrrl returns!", Jack Off Jill has always been the real deal. Those of us shunned for our looks, gender identification, weight, or sexual preference populate the front row. JOJ brought us together, created a community.
The band's message of female empowerment is more important now than ever, reminding us where we've been, and how far we have to go. After Grrrl: small stories from big lives is a collection of our stories – mine, yours, everyone's - and collectively the story of the band who brought together thousands.
So grab a pen, pencil, crayon, quill dipped in blood, whatever, and customize the front of this zine as it pertains to YOU. We've even included a space in the back of the zine so you can write YOUR story, and we hope you share them (whether they're prose, poetry, haikus, or just pictures) on aftergrrrl.tumblr.com.
Because After Grrrl is for EVERYONE.
