Feminist Rapper: Real Ladies Fight Back
If you were feeling like this hump day was going to go on forever without anything fun happening, take heart: There is a new episode of Feminist Rapper! In this installment, our Women's Studies professor uses rap to inspire a woman who doesn't think she can stand up for herself against men. Well guess what, lady? Women can, and do, fight back! And they can even do it while rapping and poking fun at academia! (Seriously, I can't wait until I can use the "for the full answer to that, read my master's thesis" comeback.)
OK, so take a few points off for inappropriate use of the word "retarded," because that is not cool. And, I kind of don't like that the joke ends up sort of being on the Feminist Rapper at the end of the episode, even though I get that this is comedy and self-deprecation is queen. Still, I love that Jenny Hagel is able to incorporate women's history, ovaries, feminist theory, and humor into these catchy raps. There is one more episode to go, and I'm sure it'll be just as clever. (Watch the first episode here.)
