This chapter will give an overview of the dangerous environment for young women in the British punk subculture in the late 1970s, followed by a discussion of the feelings of anger this sense of danger prompted in them, contributed to by a feeling of lack of control over those who appeared to have invincible power over their lives.
This article by Helen Reddington is a selection from The Oxford Handbook of Punk Rock, edited by George McKay and Gina Arnold.
