Music[edit]

Wilcox attended Evergreen State College where she studied film and worked with Tobi Vail at a sandwich shop.[1] During this time she and friends Kathleen Hanna and Vail collaborated on a feminist zine titled Bikini Kill.[2] The three women then enlisted guitarist Billy Karren and began a feminist punk band also called Bikini Kill. Wilcox provided vocals, bass, and drums for the band, which lasted throughout the '90s and is considered one of the definitive bands of the riot grrrl movement. Wilcox later performed with the bands The Feebles, The Frumpies, Star Sign Scorpio and collaborated with Christina Billotte and Steve Dore in the Casual Dots. She is working with her Bikini Kill bandmate Kathleen Hanna in the band The Julie Ruin

Wilcox collaborated with Fugazi's Brendan Canty on the theme song to the punk rock-oriented children's show Pancake Mountain.[3]
