A column in the San Jose Mercury News gives credit to the female hip-hop pioneers from California.

Funky Bay Area women 'locked,' 'strutted,' 'popped'
Davey D

In my last column (March 7), I gave a breakdown of the women who have played key roles in the funk and soul music of the '60s and '70s, which led to the explosion of Bay Area hip-hop in the '80s.

This week, in a continuing celebration of International Woman's History Month, I'm focusing on the area's female hip-hop dance pioneers.

We B*Girlz in a Break-Dancing Battle at Lincoln Center
by JOHN ROCKWELL for tha New York Times
