HIGH SCHOOL CONFIDENTIAL:
THE DIRTY GIRLS ARE ALL GOOD
So the Internet’s all about the “Dirty Girls” right now, a documentary filmed at a high school in the ’90s, in which a pair of sisters (Harper and Amber) explain why they’re not into washing their hair to meet beauty standards, why they identify with the riot grrrl movement, and why women’s rights are important. They make a ‘zine. They talk about injustice. And pretty much all the other kids from their school go on film to make fun of them.
To the high school girls out there who are dealing with shit talkers and generally catching hell for not fitting in with everyone else–good on you for embracing your inner dirty girl; we salute you.
