How the hell does this amazingly shot and edited documentary ‘Her War Is Our War‘ about women in hardcore/punk only have 6000 views??? THE FUCK??? This is easily our favorite documentary we’ve seen in the past few months…
According to Revolver, “In 2019, veteran rock journalist Christina Rowatt tagged along with Baltimore feminist hardcore-punk band War on Women as they played the Australian Download Festival to get a musician’s eye perspective on what it means to be a female artist in heavy music these days. Questions she wanted to explore included: “What do musicians really think about women in rock and feminism?” “How have things changed and how haven’t they in the worlds of punk rock and heavy metal?” “If feminism is about equality, what is the real shared experience of 99 percent of rock bands right now?”
Christina herself added that she wanted to, “…explore a musician’s eye perspective of women in rock, the riot girl movement and how the hardcore scene and heavy metal world have evolved”.
The documentary also features interviews and videos of Converge, Judas Priest touring guitarist/producer Andy Sneap, headliners Rise Against, and Grammy winner Lzzy Hale of Halestorm (the only woman in history to win the Hard Rock Grammy Award).
Like we said way at the start of this post, how the hell does this only have 6000 views??? Go bump that shit right now by watching it and spreading the word…go support women worldwide who’re continuing to make the world of heavy music much more fucking interesting with their presence, with their lyrical content, with their music! Listen to the data that the documentarian shares so you understand why “feminism” matters and why Tim McIlrath of Rise Against says “being a feminist is just common sense”.
