It's Hard Out Here For A Fem'nist

Hello Fellow Blog Sisters!

Thank you very much for welcoming me into your community!

"It's Hard Out Here For A Pimp" won the Oscar for Best Original Song at the 78th Academy Awards this past Sunday (3/06). In response, I have quickly spun up a retort:

It's Hard Out Here For A Fem'nist

I invite your thoughts on how a song sympathizing with men who traffick women would be nominated in the first place, and ultimately win?

Here's a quick look at pimp/prostitute statistics: "Eighty percent of the women were sexually assaulted by pimps via sadistic sex; 71% of pimps use drugs to control the women; and 34% of the women received death threats from pimps personally or to their family." - from “Sex Trafficking In the United States, Coalition Against Trafficking of Women Study,” Raymond, Hughes, Gomez (3/01)

Thanks for letting me share your space! :)
