Women, Hip Hop & Social Change

January 10, 2013

Women, Hip Hop & Social Change

Peacebuilding requires speaking up about issues we care about. It requires making an effort to consider different perspectives, and to reflect on our own worldviews. Every individual has a story to tell, and along with it, the power to inspire others to think, discuss, and create social change. Voices from the Frontlines are first person reports on what is happening around the world, how it impacts women, and how women are building cultures of peace. We invite you to submit an article with your views and experiences.

This week, we interviewed rapper Lady Essence on her experience breaking into the male-dominated world of hip hop. From Kashmir, we have a moving reflection on sexual assault within patriarchal societies. Finally, from the United States, a woman discusses her daily choice to embrace peace, not fear.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
