What it’s like to be a woman in the contemporary punk music scene? Producer Andrea Appleton speaks to two Baltimore musicians: Shawna Potter, frontwoman for the band War on Women, and Madi Shapiro, vocalist and guitarist for Wet Brain. Madi Shapiro also runs a feminist DIY music label based in Baltimore called "Girl Problem Records". On Friday, Girl Problem will release its third compilation, titled Justice. The record release show will feature War On Women, Rukut, No Way! and  two Baltimore hip hop acts, Toyomansi and Phizzals. The show will be at the 5th Dimension, 405 W. Franklin St.
