She Wanna Rock


To give this post proper justice, it has to begin with this video:


There is nothing like a woman.

Speaking of women: Starting tomorrow with a pre-festival kickoff and then launching on the eighth and continuing through the 19th, B-Girl Manifesto presents Can A Sista Rock A Mic? The 16 day festival is a celebration of local national and international women in the fields of music, dance, spoken word, visual arts and activism. In addition to showcasing and highlighting their acheivements, the festival is also a means to counterbalance the stereotypical and sexually-pointed images of women in today's media.
