(paperback) $16.95

In his anthology-style book, Einsminger chronicles the contributions of special women who were able to scale the barricades of male-dominated punk scenes to make an impact on audiences. Poison Ivy of the Cramps, Siouxsie Sioux, Texacala Jones, Debora Iyall of Romeo Void, Lisa Kekaula of The Bellrays, and The Germs’ Lorna Doom are just a few of the women profiled.
