It's Anchored In A Short Period Of Time - Roughly From Mid-1996 To Mid-1998 - But It Encompasses A Series Of Battles Over Meaning That Continued To Preoccupy Sleater-kinney In The Coming Decades. The Band Wrestled With The Media About How They Would Be Presented To The Public, It Contended With Technicians About How Their Sound Would Be Heard In Clubs, And They Struggled With Pervasive Social Hierarchies About How Their Work Would Be Understood In Popular Culture. The Only Instance Where The Band Didn't Have To Put Up Much Of A Fight Was When It Came To Their Fans. The Acclaim Sleater-kinney Received From Their Listeners In The Late 1990s, And Continue To Receive Today, Speaks To A Need For Icons Who Challenged Normative Notions Of Culture And Gender.
