In the summer of 1995, filmmaker Tex Clark traveled around the country to interview female musicians, journalists and historians about how their sexual and gender identity impacted their lives and informed their work. RADICAL ACT captures a moment in indie rock history and speaks to the universal experience of finding your voice in an indifferent and occasionally hostile world.

Participants include Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), Toshi Reagon, Gretchen Phillips, Melissa York (Team Dresch, Vitapup, The Butchies), Kim Coletta (Jawbox, co-owner of DeSoto Records), Shirlé Hale (Mary Lou Lord, Gerty, Womyn of Destruction), Sharon Topper (God is My Co-Pilot), journalist Evelyn McDonnell ("Mamarama: A Memoir of Sex, Kids and Rock n Roll" and "Rock She Wrote: Women Write About Rock, Pop and Rap"), author Vicky Starr ("KD Lang: All You Get Is Me") and Dr. Kay Turner (now Folk Arts Director of Brooklyn Arts Council).
