"Don't talk, do!". End of the 70s. The punk wave had just arrived in the clubs of the mainland from England. Punk promised rebellion and self-empowerment. Also for the women in the scene. They formed bands and fought for their place on the stage and fought for their place on stage among the dominant punk heavyweights, playing against social norms and outdated female role models. That is their story. A herstory of German-language punk.

Don't talk, do! - she punks from 1977 until today
