Where are the Women in Grime?
"The grime scene has always been heavily dominated by men, with alpha male ideologies pushing women in the scene to make themselves appear more masculine, both in appearance and performance.
Over time, women have been able to glamorise their image, and they now have a more diverse representation from more androgynous to hyper-feminine.
Women are beginning to carve out a narrative for themselves, pushing back against objectification, colourism and misogyny often found in the scene."
