Item Description...
Home Girls Make Some Noise: Hip Hop Feminist Anthology seeks to complicate understandings of Hip-Hop as a male space by including and identifying the women who were always involved with the culture. The anthology explores Hip-Hop as a worldview, as an epistemology grounded in the experiences of communities of color under advanced capitalism, as a cultural site for rearticulating identity and sexual politics. With critical essays, cultural critiques, interviews, personal narratives, fiction, poetry, and artwork. The contributors are varied, from women working within the Hip-Hop sphere, Hip-Hop feminists and activists "on the ground," as well as scholars, writers, and journalists.

Hip-hop Ferminism Anthology  Aug 12, 2007
The essays are excellent. These young women have brought to light how young black females are viewed by the public. Everyone should read this book especially the one by Brittney Cooper!!!!!
Mic Check One Two, One Two  May 24, 2007
"Home Girls Make Some Noise" is the quintessential praise
book written with the female MC and B-girl in mind, alternating
between poetry, prose and essays about being a female of the Hip Hop
generation and culture. The essays in this anthology were well
researched and cited credible sources.
I was pleasantly surprised by
the vast number of interviews conducted with females in the Hip Hop
industry. "Home Girls Make Some Noise" does a fantastic job of
breaking feminist Hip Hop culture down to the lowest denominator.

"Home Girls" discusses lesbians and other alternative lifestyle
women and their role in hip hop culture past and present. Most of
these alternative lifestyle women complain that mainstream hip hop
has a difficult time accepting their orientation for anything other
than visual stimulation for men in rap videos. This argument was a
perfect lead into the objectification of women in rap videos. This
objectification of women in hip hop goes far beyond the video girl
and the female rapper. Female DJs from across the country and
across the globe said that they feel the pressure to prove
themselves. This pressure comes from both male and female Hip Hop
consumers alike. The pressure on females in Hip Hop is cyclical. The
industry is having a profound effect on young girls, which is fast
becoming a social problem. Girls as young as five displaying
sexually explicit dance moves in response to what they are seeing on
BET and other music video networks.

Overall this anthology was well-written and discussed topics
that are often overlooked. I found it difficult to wrap my head
around the sheer amount of topics covered. In the end, I was won
over by the outstanding efforts of the authors and editors to
make "Home Girls Make Some Noise" a one-stop shop for feminist Hip
Hop culture.
