In an industry traditionally dominated by men, women in music have often had to shout to be heard. Untypical Girls traces the sounds, attitudes and thrift store look of women who refused to be silenced. From the punk and post punk scenes through the permutations of indie, shoegaze, grunge and eventually riot grrrl, Untypical Girls is a celebration of all things female in independent music.
