Cardi B Inspires GGE’s April #MOOD

The following statement was submitted by Girls for Gender Equity (GGE). 

When Cardi B took to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival stage, pregnant and feisty, tongue out and twerking, she lived in her whole truth. A screen behind the popular rapper revealed the homemade videos that propelled her into stardom.

From Instagram to Cosmopolitan, Cardi B creates space for herself and for women who defy respectability politics. She has defended the legitimacy of sex work -- stripping in particular -- condemned sexual abuse in the music industry, and applauded the ‘me too.’ movement. This April, as we recognize Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we celebrate our fight to be unabashed, unpoliced, unharmed, and unstoppable.
