I’m really excited about women employing DIY and feminist ethics in hip hop right now. Like punk is def still a thing in my heart but it does not hold a monopoly on DIY culture. I gotta give it up for the young women making beats at home, talking about feminism on their online radio shows and taking over stages in cat ears with their friends. Cheers to barftroop and princessnokia and trillwavefeminism for inspiring me this week.
