_Pretty in Punk: Girl's Gender Resistance in a Boy's Subculture_, Lauraine LeBlanc. The author says in her introduction that female participation in subcultures is very understudied (something that surprised me) and that sexism in most subcultures is almost totally ignored both inside and outside the scenes (I'm well aware of that). I really hope both of those will change. I hate to think that the experiences of the women I've met in various scenes goes completely unexamined. I'm glad I'm not alone in feeling that part of the reason the whole punk/goth thing is so wonderful is the giant slap in the face it gives to the "traditional" masculine/feminine cultural coding. When it's done right, that is. (07/12/2006)

though being an academic book, this is actually a totally great book about punk(girls). :)

I enjoyed reading this academic treatment with an inside perspective. I was really surprised to learn that there is little work on such subcultures from a girl's perspective. ( )
