ORGAN THING: That FAVIANNA RODRIGUEZ “I’m A Slut…” artwork… and who’s for some YEASTIE GIRL?.

ORGAN THING OF THE DAY,  January 19th, That Favianna Rodriguez “I’m A Slut…” poster that we featured here a couple of days ago that got you asking questions here, and apparently got others who had seen it in the documentary asking elsewhere,,,,

“My “I am a Slut” poster appeared on the Migration Is Beautiful documentary and people have been asking me about why I made the image. Everywhere you turn, the right wing is attempting to further limit and hinder women’s access to reproductive rights through anti-contraceptive measures. F++k that! I am fed up! Patriarchy is destructive to society, it’s a form of violence against women, and there is no place for it in contemporary culture. We have to call it out when it happens. To get a copy of this poster, just click on this link

So Yeastie Girls….who wants to get involved….

'YEASTIE GIRLS' - a group show curated by CULTIVATE VYNER STREET

'That girl thinks she's the queen of the neighborhood.
I got news for you, she is!' (Bikini Kill 'Rebel Girl')

The YEASTIE GIRLS show re-visits the ethos of 'Riot Grrrl' - the
underground feminist punk rock movement that took place in early
nineties west coast America.

The show aims to bring together todays riot grrrl inspired creativity;
art, music, writing, zines…….  Is riot grrrl still relevant 20 years
on?  Are women now more empowered and supportive of one another?

The 90s riot grrrl movement allowed women their own creative space to
make political statements about the issues they were facing in the
male oriented punk rock community, as well as in society; to express
their views on issues such as rape, domestic abuse, sexuality, and
female empowerment.  As Tobi Vail (drummer with Bikini Kill) said, the
purpose of the Riot Grrrls was to fight against the things that kept
women divided, to start a discourse and to give importance to women
and the things that they do.

So, has anything changed in the last 20s years?  What issues should we
be addressing now? Can we still make our voices heard? What form does
Riot Grrrl creativity take in 2013?

Will will be inviting artists to take part, but would love to hear
from ARTISTS, MUSICIANS, ZINE MAKERS, ART COLLECTIVES etc. who want to
get involved; please CONTACT US with your ideas. All ideas are
welcomed…….and no, you don't have to be female, it's open to everyone
- "We're not anti-boy, we're pro-girl" (Molly Neuman, Bratmobile)
