Kathleen Hanna, Riot Grrrl feminist hero, proposes a collaboration with Miley Cyrus
The pairing is not as entirely surprising as you might imagine
Nothing is confirmed just yet, but what’s even more unlikely is that the pairing was Hanna’s idea. The punk veteran tweeted to Cyrus that she had an idea for “an album only you are daring enough to make”.
Her proposal came after Cyrus shared a series of Instagram pictures of Hanna’s former Nineties band Bikini Kill, one of which featured Hanna with the word “s**t” written across her stomach. Cyrus captioned the image “coolest ever”.
She is yet to - at least publicly - respond to Hanna, but while a collaboration might come as a surprise, Hanna has previously spoken about her open-minded approach to feminism and contemporary music.
“I’m glad the word 'feminist' is being talked about and that influential pop stars are bringing up this conversation,” she said in an interview with Tiny Mix Tapes.
“If [Miley] says she’s a feminist, then who I am to stop her? I’m not the feminist police. I don’t get to determine that. I’m happy that young women are embracing that term, for whatever reason it means to them. Maybe for her it’s about freedom of sexuality and freedom of expression.
“For other people, it’s about ending oppression against everyone, not just women, but you’re starting from a woman’s perspective because that’s what you’re interested in.”
