I want to be Marisa Metlzer's best friend. Her latest book, Girl Power: The Nineties Revolution in Music, explores the history and influence of the most integral years of my life. The early '90s were a pivotal time for women in music. Feminism wasn't new---neither were girl groups, zines or punk rock---but Meltzer permeates the spirit of a movement that forever changed the music industry. Meltzer dives into how riot grrrl morphed and was mass-marketed, sans all of the politics and intellect, as the Spice Girls---but this isn't a book solely dedication to the historiography. Meltzer adds her personal experiences; she doesn't preach or snub. Her writing is casual, her story relatable. This book for is anyone wore baby barrettes or scribbled "incest" across their bellies in marker.
