Outside of my Moms, this was probably my first contact with any sort of feminism. I wonder if they even called it that then. It's weird watching this, I'd forgotten how much South Africa was on everyone's minds back then. I think the fall of Apartheid changed some of our thinking here in America too. Anti-Apartheid imagry used to be all over hip-hop, from YZ's "Thinking Of A Masterplan," to 3rd Bass's "Gas Face."
