Rah! Rah! – Locating Gender in Genre: a Feminist Punk Rock Sound?

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.

‘Locating Gender in Genre: a Feminist Punk Rock Sound?’ is a conversation that dives into people’s creative process to flesh out relationships between gender and genre performance. Hosted by Dr Lisa MacKinney and featuring panellists Katie Dixon, Sarah Hardiman, Laura MacFarlane, Alison Bolger and Karina Utomo. ‘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: ‘Gendered Spaces: What Happens When We Carve Out Space?’ and ‘History, Context and Change: from the Wet Ones to Wetfest’.
