Rah! Rah! – Gendered Spaces: What Happens When We Carve Out Space?
This is a recording of one of the panels that took place during ‘Rah! Rah!’, a feminist punk retrospective of the last 30 years of female, femme and non-binary sounds from this city, presented by Sonic aGender and curated by Janelle Johnstone.
‘Gendered Spaces: What Happens When We Carve Out Space?’ is a foray into what’s happened in Melbourne when crew have created gendered spaces within punk and rock scenes. Hosted by Grace Kindellin and featuring panellists Shannon Driscoll, Sarah Thompson, Dale Derekshwaser and Sarah Blaby. ‘Rah! Rah!’ was MC’d by Linda J of The Dacios and Little Ugly Girls fame.
Triple R broadcast this recording on Friday 8 March, aka International Women’s Day, 2019, along with two other ‘Rah! Rah!’ panels: ‘History, Context and Change: from the Wet Ones to Wetfest’ and ‘Locating Gender in Genre: a Feminist Punk Rock Sound?’
