#Quote
1I think for women, in a way, there are fewer rules about what you can and can't do, because there's less history.
2I was really into Warhol and pop art, and I thought the next step was to actually be working within popular culture.
3We've been waiting, you know, for them to get rid of us. But nobody wants to be the one to get rid of Sonic Youth.
4I consider myself to be a sloppy feminist.
5All women are natural anarchists
