In this, the age of #resistance, it's easy to look around and come away with the impression that sticking it to The Man is, well, a man's game: men dominate all the hottest contrarian media; male politicians and pundits are being lauded for mastering the Capitol Hill clapback (even though none of them could ever dream of getting on Queen Maxine Waters' level); and don't even get us started on the toxic masculine vibes of the 2017 punk-rock scene.

But what if we were to tell you that women were the OG anti-establishmentarians of the music industry? It's true: women basically invented raging against the machine, and Megan Schaller's got just the comic to prove it. This week's comic is a tribute to all the badass ladies of punk who basically laid the groundwork for pretty much everything cool that's going on in music today. Say it with us: this one's for the ladies.
