Bodies of Resistance: The Woman's Guide to Getting to the Front
The 'gig' or small, independent music concert, has always been, and remains to be, one of the most important physical manifestation of punk culture. Despite the fact that contemporary punk culture supposes to possess a non-judgemental and equal participation for all ethos, there exists a hierarchy of space and participation at gigs that can cause a lack of visibility for women. Confronting this, Bodies of Resistance asks women to reproduce stances that they have used before to defend themselves and to create their own space at gigs. Getting to the front can be a struggle, both physically and mentally, but it is necessary for greater visibility for women in punk.
