Music style - Riot Grrrl

Founded in 1992, Riot Grrrl was an American social movement that advocated for women's rights and empowerment through music. It was a largely grassroots feminist punk rock movement that started in the United States in the early 1990s and soon spread to Canada and Europe.

The music of Riot Grrrl was primarily female-fronted, although a few men played in bands as well. It focused on topics like gender inequality, self-empowerment, and challenging sexism; lyrics often addressed topics such as rape culture, body image, slut shaming, and violence against women. Many Riot Grrrl bands were short-lived and disbanded after just a few years, but their impact has been far-reaching. Musicians from all genres have cited Riot Grrrl as an influence, from pop stars like Taylor Swift to rappers like Tyler the Creator. Riot Grrrls paved the way for later feminist punk rock movements like riot grrrl reunion tours and the "metoo" movement.
