Ladies first: Representing women in hip-hop with Glennisha Morgan| December 27, 2012
Rolling Stone magazine recently came out with a list of the 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time, which included only three female-fronted tracks. With so many great female emcees out there, why are women so underrepresented in hip-hop and how can we change that?
Meghan Murphy speaks with Glennisha Morgan, a multimedia journalist, photographer and filmmaker who runs Fembassy, a blog site that is dedicated to female emcees and women in hip-hop. She is currently working on a documentary about female MCs called Turn Me Up. Support her project at Indiegogo.
