Rebellion and the 80s/90s girl-group sound

There’s an article here about the indie pop girl group sound of the late 80s and early 90s. The article focuses upon Sarah records and the artist Amelia Fletcher, but it also makes some broader claims about the rebellion and resistance in this girl dominated indie pop music. The suggestion being that it stood as an alternative to some of the more male dominated and macho musical forms of the time, both aesthetically and in terms of those shaping the scene. Most of the article thought its about Fletcher’s career. It is interesting to thinking though that producing friendly melodic pop music might be an act of cultural resistance in itself.
