Kathleen Hanna – Rebel Girl: My Life as a Feminist Punk

A trailblazing feminist icon, Kathleen Hanna changed the punk scene in the 90’s with her bands, Bikini Kill and Le Tigre. This rebel girl is back with her electric, searing memoir that takes us into her tumultuous childhood, her early years on the scene, and her connections with other music icons like Kurt Cobain, Joan Jett, and the Beastie Boys. Join Chicago Humanities with Women & Children First, Chicago’s feminist bookstore since 1979, for an evening with the music legend in conversation with Puja Patel, Editor-in-Chief of Pitchfork, on how both the hard and the joyful times fuel her revolutionary art and music.

A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to Peace Sisters, an organization Kathleen Hanna is an ambassador and advocate for.
