But let's get back to the point of women in punk. I don't think it's fair to say that there aren't women in punk currently!!!! There are TONS. Maybe they're just not being written about in glossy mags like NME. I could list a ton of current punk bands with female musicians but for now check out:
Naked Aggression who started in 1990 in Wisconsin in response to the Gulf War. They are still kickin it.
The Headless Marines Swedish punk.
For Fuck Sake crusty punx from California.
And check out Anarchcunts, a new band from Boston.
