    Hip Hop Feminism & Psychology

    Hip Hop Feminism is a dynamic and critical paradigm that addresses the intersection of race, gender, and class within the context of Hip Hop culture. Initially emerging as a response to the pervasive issues of misogyny and the underrepresentation of Black women in the Hip Hop industry, Hip Hop Feminism is a transformative movement that seeks to challenge and reshape the cultural landscape of Hip Hop by centering the experiences and perspectives of Black women and promoting empowerment, love, and social consciousness.

    Dr. Aisha Durham, a Black feminist cultural critic, is a Professor of Communications and Media at the University of South Florida. She has written numerous books and articles examine Black womanhood in Hip Hop, including  co-editing the first hip hop feminist anthology Home Girls Make Some Noise: Hip Hop Feminist Anthology and NCA award-winning monograph Home with Hip Hop Feminism: Performances in Communication and Culture. Dr. Durham is also a former contributor to the Crunk Feminist Collective, and an advisory board member for the Smithsonian Anthology of Hip Hop and Rap. To democratize knowledge, Dr. Durham writes public scholarship and provides cultural analyses about hip hop for news and entertainment outlets, such as CNN, NPR, Ms. Magazine, and The Times of London.
