Girl Punk toby jug version 3 produced by Maria Alvarez Echenique of London, England, in 2019 as a unique piece of artwork in The Subcultures of Hackney Series. This Girl Punk toby jug has a dyed punk red Mohican hair style and is playing a guitar. The maker’s selection of transfers of significant women-related punk record covers that decorate the base that the punk sits on highlight how the punk movement was at the forefront of including and empowering women. Hackney is a vibrant multicultural part of inner London, and punk women have played a colorful and active part of the social life of Hackney. Though slightly less common these days, “punk’s picnics” still take place in parks, noisy gigs in pubs and small venues, and sometimes underground squat parties are put on with punk bands as a part of them.
