Bad bitches: this one’s for you

Growing up on the Southside of Chicago, Sesali Bowen learned early on how to hustle and stay on her toes as she navigated Blackness, body-shaming, friendships, sex work, and more. In her memoir, Bowen recounts how she forged her own path in hip-hop journalism, where she interviewed game-changing artists like Megan Thee Stallion, Lizzo, and Janelle Monáe—and then decided to change the game herself.

Mainstream feminism often leaves out Black women: their lives, their needs, their dreams, and yes, their love for hip-hop. Determined to create a more inclusive space for all women, femmes, and nonbinary babes, Bowen coins and defines the term “trap feminism,” a contemporary framework that examines where hip-hop and feminism meet. An unforgettable, genre-defining debut and quintessential text for the hot girl era, Bad Fat Black Girl continues a Black feminist legacy for all.
