Not Just Girls, Not Just Rock

Girls Rock Carbondale is a radical youth program that promotes self-esteem and expression for young girls and genderfluid kids throughout the Southern Illinois community. Using participant observation and in-depth interviewing, Crawshaw's study, Not Just Girls, Not Just Rock, considers how kids contribute to feminist social movements while challenging and, at times, reproducing gendered, raced, sexualized, and classed hegemonic norms.
