Listen to Las Hijas de Violencia’s “Sexista Punk” in Full


Like Pussy Riot in Russia, Las Hijas de Violencia (The Daughters of Violence) in Mexico are a feminist arts collective that take on all manner of misogyny while rocking out. Earlier today, we shared a post with you from our friends at Runway Riot who posted an awesome mini-documentary on the group. While that mini-doc is going viral right now, the song used in it – “Sexista Punk” – was released in the fall of last year, and these ladies have been going strong since 2014.

Check out the original video for “Sexista Punk!”

Sadly, I haven’t been able to find an English translation of the lyrics, and while I do speak fluent Spanish, my translating skills are crap. If anyone would like to help out, please feel free to do so in the comments below!

And if you want to follow along with Las Hijas de Violencia as they continue fighting the Spanish-speaking patriarchy, you can like them on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter.
