Is Miley Cyrus finally crawling out of her hippie/crafting phase? On Friday (August 1), the singer started posting pics of musician/famed feminist Kathleen Hanna. Does this mean that Miley is a riot grrrl now?
For those who don’t know, Hanna was the lead singer of Bikini Kill, a Washington-based band that paved the way for women in music by pointing out the inequalities in the punk scene. Many riot grrrls started their own chapters of the movement, formed bands and created their own zines to spread the word.
Sound like Miley? We’ll have to see, but at least we know she can bring some sweet DIY skills to the table for zine-making.
As for Hanna, she moved on to other feminist projects like Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin.
