Welcome to the Hip Hop, Resistance, and Feminism series

February 5, 2010

Welcome to the Gender Across Borders series on hip hop, resistance, and feminism. This series focuses on hip hop and its interactions with patriarchy, racism, and other forms of oppression — both within and outside the mainstream pop world. From Nicki Minaj and gender-bending to resistance movements in Mali, this series reveals the varying faces and voices of hip hop. While the authors focus on different moments and methods of resistance, they all unite around a common belief in hip hop as a revolutionary form of communication — one that has the power to carry messages of resistance against occupation, poverty, and structural violence. While some voices enforce the status quo, others “bring wreck to the patriarchy,” opening up the possibility of a more just world.

The series will run today and tomorrow (February 5 and 6). Enjoy!

    I’m confused. Where is the series? I’m all about what you’re saying above – just wondering if there’s more?

    I’m so happy to see this! I’m from the Women’s Student Activist Collective (WSAC) at the University of Minnesota, and we will be co-sponsoring a hip hop conference titled “Vices to Verses” on campus this April. The first day will be dedicated to women and feminism in the hip hop world . I’m going to share this series with our group members!

      We’re really happy to hear that! Tell us how the conference goes, we’d be curious to know.
