Empowering Women & Girls

The Fresh, Bold, and So Def Women’s Initiative (FBSD), led by Hip Hop Education Center (HHEC) is an intergenerational, international Hip Hop feminist movement that honors, empowers, and preserves the contributions and achievements of women and girls in Hip Hop. It is the only one of its kind collective with the goal of not only to document women’s achievements and contributions to Hip Hop, but also to build a cannon of memorabilia and artifacts including leaflets, photographs, art, poetry, and music. The FBSD Collection will be enhanced with educational tools such as a multimedia timeline and curriculum.
