THE VOICES OF PUNK ROCK WOMEN
CONNECTIONS. SUPPORT. WOMEN'S PERSPECTIVE
In 2016, two punk rock women, Kristen and Jessica decided that there was no designated place in the punk rock scene for women... both artists and fans... so they created one. Mable Syndrome evolved into a podcast, online blog and social media groups where fans can interact in a way that is supportive of women. But Mable Syndrome isn't just FOR women, it's for any individuals who believe that women deserve a unique and supportive place in the scene.
