The Poison Girls were an English anarcho-punk band formed in Brighton, whose songs often explored issues of sexuality and gender roles. They were closely affiliated with the anarchist band Crass and played over 100 gigs together, including benefits as a part of the peace movement and for the Wapping Autonomy Centre.
