LofHHF offers workshops, performance opportunities, international artist exchanges and public talks about women in Hip Hop culture. LofHHF trains, educates, and creates the next generation of women in the Hip-Hop dance community. The festival is having an international impact on girls and women in the Hip-Hop culture: by producing events for women and girls to share, create and present their own work. LofHHF is a driving force of women in the hip-hop culture.
In Hip-Hop culture as a whole, women are underrepresented, and the representations shown are often are very negative,women are often portrayed as objects that exist purely for sexual gratification. This isrelevant because girls and women are bombarded everyday with an infinite number ofnegative images of women through television, magazine, and almost every form media andHip-Hop culture has fallen subject to the same use of women.Hip-Hop culture was born from the expressive manifestation of the past and currentexperiences as well as the collective consciousness of African-American and Latino-American male youth that has been transformed into a global force. It is being used to sellevery product mentionable from Vitamin water to shoes and clothing. You can referencealmost any MTV hip-hop music video and female dancers are repeatedly shown scantily clad,parading around male music artists.
