"We have big plans for a grassroots, girl power, teenage girl movement of youth rebellion—jackets, we need jackets. The power of style must not be downplayed in terms of political mobilization. Can’t you picture it—gangs of girls—teenage girls in gangs all across america, breaking through boundaries of race and class and sexual identity, girls so strong together that they don’t listen to people who tell them they are stupid or that they don’t mean anything because they don’t really exist—girls so strong together that no one dares to fuck with them when they are walking down the street—girls so strong together that they learn to help out their moms and help them to get away from their dads when necessary. … GIRL SOLDIERS … we need jackets. And just think of the books that will be written, the cultures that will arise, the bands, the movies that will be made etc."

Tobi Vail, from Jigsaw #4 (1991) as printed in Alison Piepmeier’s Girl Zines.
