Reykjavíkurdætur

These “Daughters of Reykjavík”, to translate their name, are a female hip-hop crew founded

to correct the glaring absence of female voices on the Icelandic rap scene. They came

together in 2013 after the success of an open mic night for women rappers, but this collective

of more than a dozen MCs did not find it easy to carve out a place for themselves in a world

dominated by men, who, they say, did not exactly welcome female competition with open

arms. Still, Reykjavíkurdætur had things to say, and their flow is full of feminist slogans,

protests against gender violence and celebrations of their vaginas, among other vital issues.

Because the Icelandic rap scene is not for men only.
