With this blog, I aim to research and document the accomplishments of all 57 people named in the song “Hot Topic” by Le Tigre. See the first post for a little bit of background and check out the song lyrics for a full list.

In 2008, artist Kirsten McCrea exhibited her 60-painting “Hot Topic” series (including portraits of the members of Le Tigre). To see the paintings and learn more about her work, visit her blog. The Wikipedia page for “Hot Topic” links to articles about most of the 57 inspirational figures—I don’t want to merely duplicate these or any other Hot Topic projects but rather create a new space to explore these women & men and talk about other feminists, artists, writers, and musicians who inspire us today.

    Hey! Really excited in watching this blog develop. Also, I’m almost finished with Ariel Schrag’s high school series, which I started reading because of the song.

      Thanks! I want to read them, too. Autobiographical comics are my favorite.
