Disturbing Frequency: A Critical Study of Misogynist Language in Popular Music
Radio waves and iPods today are inundated with the disturbing frequency of misogynistic music. But are we really listening to its message? It has become the norm in our society to listen to music that not only degrades women, but is also threatening and violent. This critical study explores how and why we became so accepting of this music. The rise of hip-hop, the creation of MTV and the backlash against feminism in the 1980's created the perfect storm within which misogyny could fester and produce itself in our music. This SIP hopes to contribute to the growing movement of voices speaking out against misogyny in music.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
