Exploring Chicana Feminism with Alice Bag
Alice Bag is a punk rock singer, musician, author, educator and feminist archivist. She is the lead singer and co-founder of the Bags, one of the first wave of punk bands to form in the mid-1970s in Los Angeles. Her first book Violence Girl, From East LA Rage to Hollywood Stage is the story of her upbringing in East Los Angeles, her eventual migration to Hollywood and the euphoria and aftermath of the first punk wave. This bilingual former elementary school teacher continues as an author, outspoken activist, feminist and a self-proclaimed troublemaker.
