From panel discussions to boobs aflame, feminism and punk rock form a holy union at Chicago's Ladyfest

So what do feminists look like now? None of the Ladyfest artists are likely to espouse the beliefs of an archetypal Woman in Rock or tell a Disney-like fairy tale of Lady and the Amp. But they can tell you that this is what gender politics looks like: two sisters and their daughters blasting your eardrums with DIY funkadelic. And this is what breaking traditional sex roles looks like: an artist coming toward a man with a vat of gummy liquid, asking him to drop his pants. And this is what forming a community of women rockers looks like: two musicians bound together by musical fabric. Feminist rock seems to classify itself by its very existence.
