Kathleen Hanna Quotes

Kathleen Hanna Quotes: I talked a lot early on in my career about intersectionality and how racism and classism and sexism and homophobia and capitalism are all connected with each other, and they're these crazy systems that are feeding on each other and are also damaging.

And I'm so thrilled when I get to meet younger people who are doing that so much better than I did.

Kathleen Hanna Quote: I'm sure if you see things you wrote when you were 19, you cringe. I saw stuff like angry poetry that I wrote when I was mad at my father, or photos I took where I smeared period blood on myself. It's embarrassing.

Quote about Kathleen Hanna: Me and my friends in high school were the only girls who went to hardcore shows. It was three of us, and the rest of the audience was male.
