In the article, the author says that "In its earliest stages, rap was 'a male thing'" and that "Domestic space, equated with repression and containment. as well as with the 'feminine' was resisted and rejected... As a result, much rap music is riddled with sexism and misogyny." With the popularity of rap and the steps taken to further Black's social position, do you think a step needs to be taken to remove the sexism and misogyny in rap music today? Do you think it ever will? Or is it going to be part of rap forever?
