Quotes:

Ari Up and the Slits are highly defined examples of an ideal type that is becoming more attractive to women all the time. What they represent is a revolutionary and basic shift of female ego from one which is biologically defined to one which is made strong by an assertive, mainstream role in society. Thus they are far more 'threatening' than the male musicians they are touring with. At their most outrageous, the antics of male rock stars are only traditional expressions of male aggression and delinquency...The Slits however, without giving up their capacity to be warm, emotional people, are fighting for power, independence and recognition for their ideas and what they do.
- Caroline Coon (1988 -- the New Wave Punk Rock Explosion 1977)

The audience is scruffier than I imagined. There are a few urchin punk and Slits lookalikes...most of them are expecting some kind of rasta-feminist freak show...
- Myles Palmer
(New Wave Explosion-'New York Notes: The Slits at the Ritz' 1981)

They were obvious targets for the sensationalist British press who began running headlines like 'All Girl Punk Horror'
- Glen A. Baker and Stuart Coupe (The New Music 1981)
