Maybe even too raw for Punk Rock (if that is at all possible), the all girl group, the Slits helped break down the gender doors. The Slits were among the first female group empowered in their own sexuality and were able to deliver a message that was campy yet lyrically deeper than the casual fan would give them credit for. With musical styling that ranged from Punk, Reggae and New Wave, they many not have had an extensive recording career but they helped opened the doors for others of their kind to follow.
