Writer Sara Marcus delves into the Riot Grrrl scene of the early 1990s with her new book, Girls to the Front. Marcus explores the world of new young feminists who demanded their rights loudly! The revolution will not be televised but you can catch the roving book tour as it makes its way across the United States -- hitting many Ladies Lotto chapter cities. So, head out to the nearest event, snag a book and listen to some tunes and readings that'd make Sandra Dee blush.
