Told in the form of a memoir by Maddy, one of the members of the gang, Foxfire: Confessions of a Girl Gang looks back on a succession of events that shaped the lives of five small-town girls from working-class families. Fed up with the stifling sexism of the era, fearless leader Legs, along with friends Maddy, Lana, Rita and Goldie, decides to use novel guerrilla tactics to strike a series of blows against the predators and male chauvinists in their town. Forming a gang and initiating each other with a symbolic tattoo, the Foxfire girls pledge to uphold female pride and solidarity. Soon they aren’t just harassing lecherous men, but playing Robin Hood by making donations to the needy. But things take a darker turn when Legs hatches a desperate and dangerous scheme to keep the embattled gang together.
