Girl Germs

Girl Germs was a cut and paste zine created by Allison Wolfe and Molly Neuman, both members of the band Bratmobile.

Published just before Riot Grrrl truly emerged, it helped pave the way for this movement, along with other proto-Riot Grrrl zines such as Tobi Vail's Jigsaw and Bikini Kill by Vail, Kathi Wilcox and Kathleen Hanna.

Contributors to Girl Germs included Erin Smith (also of Bratmobile and co-editor of the zine Teenage Gang Debs); Sue P. Fox; Kathleen Hanna; Jean Smith, of the band Mecca Normal; the editors of Double Bill, Caroline Azar, Jena von Brucker, G.B. Jones, Johnny Noxzema and Rex; Jen Smith (editor of Red Rover); and Kaia Wilson. Groups interviewed by Girl Germs included Calamity Jane, Unrest, 7 Year Bitch, Jawbox and Fastbacks.

Both Wolfe and Neuman also published the zine riot grrrl.
