Excerpts from a talk: In 1980, the oppositional shout of punk rock was sounding throughout the world, including in Ottawa. A small but vibrant community sprang up here, inspired by the DIY attitude and political consciousness of the movement. Women were key players, but their story has seldom been told. As part of the She Wants An Output exhibit open at Carleton University, curator Michael Davidge moderates a panel titled Women in Ottawa's 80s Punk Rock Scene and featuring artist and musician Mary Anne Barkhouse, musician and arts administrator Keltie Duncan (Girls+ Rock Ottawa) and writer and curator Julia Pine.
