Rock, Rage & Self Defense: An Oral History of Seattle's Home Alive follows the origin story of Seattle's grass-roots, self defense collective Home Alive. Prompted by the rape and murder of The Gits' lead singer Mia Zapata, as well as other deaths in the Arts and Music community. Scared and infuriated, her friends and community members came together to share their fears and discuss how to be safe in that environment. The result was a low-cost self defense program. Understanding the connection between self defense and self-expression, nine women politicized the Seattle scene.
