Women in Hip Hop

Randall Spann FunX, Terry Ellmer independent, Beckie Sugden ICM Partners, Ariez Baby 1010LDN

English spoken

ESNS22_picto_black_.png Name your 5 favourite rappers! Now, how many of those are women? While hiphop is a leading genre in many countries, female and non-binary talent has always been underrepresented. Let’s take a look at the equality of opportunity. What are the roadblocks, how does sexuality and sexism come into play and how can we create a (more) positive environment for young women in a man’s world? In this panel we’ll take a look at the music industry and discuss cause, opportunities and responsibilities.
