It's Time for Women of Color to Talk Back

It's Time for Women of Color to Talk Back | Herstory | Scoop.it
"We cannot separate the culture of objectification of women from literal, physical attacks, where women of color are often disproportionately targeted due to their exotification and stereotyped hypersexuality."
Curator comment: Sexual irresponsibility cannot be adequately addressed without continual acknowledgement of our rapacious cultural appetite for sexual exploitation.

Following some of the links from this article resulted in the discovery of the wonderful SPARK, "a girl-fueled activist movement to demand an end to the sexualization of women and girls in media."

“I’m looking at whether Nicki Minaj’s hyper-sexuality through her body and her appearance promotes rigid gender types, and then whether that enforces ideas of homophobia within hip-hop,” Mcginty says. She is also examining Minaj’s gay male alter ego, Roman Zolanski, and whether her performance of a man plays into her hyper-sexuality or complicates it.


Curator comment: this is an article about “Feminism and Hip-hop”at Harvard.

Brandon Jones's curator insight, April 20, 2013 7:44 PM

Hip Hop Archive at Harvard University.

The below quote is an excerpt from the article in which I find really interesting, "...........This Afro-Brazilian community was also a big consumer of African-American styles of music. They could not understand exactly what African-Americans were saying due to the language barrier, but because of the civil rights imagery on the covers of vinyl records, they understood what these musicians were talking about."

Interesting perspectivies on how Hip Hop influences other genres.  Good read.

An opinionated woman obsessed with objects, entertained by ephemera, intrigued by researching, fascinated by culture & addicted to writing. The wind says my name; doesn't put an @ in front of it, so maybe you don't notice. http://www.kitsch-slapped.com

It's as easy to romanticize the past as it is to demonize it; instead, let's learn from it.
