From the Back of the Room (A Documentary About Women in D.I.Y.) Is Heading To New England!

by Annelise S


Calling all New Englanders: From the Back of the Room, a documentary chronicling female involvement in the diy punk community, is going on tour through your home state!


“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.”

You definitely won’t want to miss this unique opportunity to learn about and engage with one of the most influential feminist movements of our time! DIY and PUNK are ALIVE!
