The topic that I have the most lingering questions about are groupies and Riot Grrrl. I feel like groupies really were strongly influenced by the women’s movement and sexual liberation. I also feel that groupies really paved the way for the Third Wave feminists/the Riot Grrrl movement. Now, however, the Riot Grrrl movement is dead. Groupies were about having sex with men for your own pleasure, while appreciating the music. Riot Grrrl abandoned the need to have men make music by making their own music. What concerns me the most is that even after all this time, and all this rock music; there are still not that many female musicians. The same can be seen in almost every other entertainment industry. The absence of women who are serious actresses, women who are serious and highly regarded film directors, women who produce their own music, women who have work in art museums, women whose writing gets to bear the title of “Literature” and gets to be in the “Canon.” All these different types of art have an undeniable absence of women. And the talent has to be out there. This isn’t anything that the course could have covered; it’s just something that I notice in my everyday life. I think it’s a really potent commentary about something that is going wrong with how we are raising our daughters that there aren’t that many women who are being taking seriously with their art. Maybe it is just a matter of time, because women just haven’t had as much time to make art as men have had. I want to see a re-vamping of the third wave or even maybe a fourth wave of feminism that demands a valorization of art (and whatever other creative works) created by women, trans people, gay people, queer people, what have you.
