Trailblazing feminist and musician, Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre, The Julie Ruin) has announced her book, Rebel Girl: My Life as a Feminist Punk, which is due out May 14 via Ecco. This memoir traces Hanna back to their childhood and builds upon her formative college years in Olympia and fighting hard for gigs.

In the book, Hanna talks about falling in love with Ad-Rock of Beastie Boys, her battle with Lyme disease, and her musical growth in her bands Le Tigre and The Julie Ruin. She also writes candidly about the Riot Grrrl movement, documenting with love its grassroots origins but critiquing its later exclusivity.

Check out our Why Not Both podcast episode with Hanna from 2020.
