    Feminists All Over The World Are Rapping About Women’s Rights

    Check out these feminist rappers and their approach to addressing topics that are most important to them.

    1. Social Change Through Rhymes

    Portuguese, “Ghetto Woman” by Laysa; “Minha gangue vem do gueto, pro mundo só respeito/Essência vem de dentro, não tem a ver com peito.”/”My gang comes from the ghetto, for the world only respect/Essence comes from within, it has nothing to do with the chest.” She is a feminist rapper who definitely moves with confidence and pride.

     

    2. Death and Sex

    French, “Plus putes que toutes les putes” by ORTIES; Featured in 2016 French film Grave / Raw , the verses in this horror-core inspired rap are downright creepy. “Cnard, je te préfère dur et froid, t’es moins bvard.”/”A**hole, I prefer you hard and cold, less bullsh*t.”

    3. Art vs. Imperialism

    “Organs” by Pssy Riot is a Russian song. In English, “organs” translates to “law enforcement bodies.” The members of the art collective Pssy Riot have had encounters with Russian law enforcement officers, and some have even served time in jail for their actions. The book titled Comradely Greetings: The Prison Letters of Nadya and Slavoj features a collection of letters exchanged between Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, a prominent member of P*ssy Riot, and Slavoj Žižek.

    4. “Where ‘You From?”

    Japanese, “TOTSUKA” by ASOBOiSM and featuring Cypress Ueno; This is a rap about the “hometown” of Totsuka. “Where ‘you from?” This song is fun and cute!

    5. Better Skip The Ring

    English, “Bling Bling” by Junglepssy; Junglepssy rocks the English-language as a Brooklyn-born singer of Jamaican heritage. As a Black woman, she represents “double jeopardy” as she must navigate in-between dealing with two marginalized identities. “Bling bling, *****, do my own thing,*****/F*** a wedding ring that ding a ling was just a fling, *****.”
