Anattitude and Catfight Magazine are investigating the involvement of females in hiphop. For this project Catfight is working on a Women in Graffiti - timeline for next Anattitude Magazine issue (#03/2008). If you know any tagnames or have pics of tags and pieces done by females in your neighbourhood (or anywhere else) between 1970-2000, also the dates (the years where these girls were most aktive/where they come from/ anything special) - please mail us: bitchesincontrol [at] or jee-nice [at]

Important: Do forward this message to everyone who can support our search! This might be the only chance to really get an overview of the ladies that are/were active in graffiti, and define our place in the history of graff!
