Partly coined by Kathleen Hanna of Bikini Kill, it was supposed to be a essentially the 90's form of a female rock revolution. Mainly it was hard rock music focused more on the female side of life such as rape, sexism, discrimination, gender conformity, stalking, etc.
Yes... 'cause women weren't dealing with those issues and male musicians were obviously championing their causes and speaking for them through their music. Especially scenes like heavy metal (See Hair Metal's objectification of women during the 80's) and dance and later hip hop in the early to mid 90's. All pioneers for the female voice.
It was more a "rock revolution" in the sense of trying to get the female perspective on issues such as rape out there as opposed to musically doing something new. It's not exactly like Madonna and Mariah Carey and Janet Jackson were talking about the realistic hardships that women were going through then.
