What is a rude girl
It all started....... In the late 1950s Jamaica was gaining independence from Great
Britain. A Jamaican record producer Clement "Coxsone" Dodd, wanted his musicians to create a new uniquie Jamaican sound. A Bassist named Cluet Johnson (clue J) ran the "hardest-driving and
Recording band" developing this sound in Jamaica and went about the town greeting his
Friends w/ a call of "Love Skavoovie." From this greeting, the name of the music naturally
Developed into "ska." Ska was created in a poor, third world country right after WWI, and it
was influenced swing, boogie-woogie, early rock and jazz. The first wave of ska in
America was late 60s to early 70s (from Jamaica). In England, where 2Tone set off, In 1979,
The British music scene took a liking to a Jamaican music called ska. A unique Jamaican jazz culture where the melody of horns fused with the drums in a free form music which was mellifluous and rebellious. Ska became Jamaica's first indigenous popular music form. A hit at home, ska reigned supreme in Jamaica for many years. The fans often dressed
Up in black and white clothing as a 'Rudeboy'. What is a Rudeboy? Rudeboys were gangsters
that at existed from the middle of 1966 to early in 1967 in Jamaica. Music was now written
about these rudeboys. These gangsters were victims of horrible social conditions in which they had
had to live in, and often had no choice but to resort to crime. "The Rudeboy fashion in Britain
was more of a 'happy dancing guy in a stylish two-tone suit and pork pie hat.' However, the
British Rudeboy was dressed more like the Mods of the sixties than the original Jamaican
Rudeboys." The 2 Tone movement was symbolic of the struggle against racism
Between blacks and whites in British society. The two colors, black and white, were used
together on all of the artwork and checkered patterns that decorated the second wave to
symbolize black and white unity. Ska bands formed all over the UK, often of mixed ethnic
backgrounds, to play a danceable beat and to try to stop the racial discrimination that had
been going on for quite some time. This does not tell me what a rude girl is? Well according
to history, there never was a named rude girl. But there was a rude girl eventhough there was no name for her.
Symbolizing her strength into getting equilibrium of suffrage though the years, and how she has achieved
In fighting against discrimination towards women, and all races and ethnicity's. And she
Continues to have a fire in her mind and body symbolizing, a rude girl. An independent. A Woman. This world isnt fit for any
kind of discrimination, towards men, women, race, size, shape, or color. There are no levels, they are all a form of hate. And all that hate conforms to is
a breaking down of humanity. Sadly, this is all out in the world. Some forms of discrimination are ok because they have been
accepted into society. People have just gotten so blind that the real truth is that whether its accepted or not its still hate. and there are no levels to it.
Everyday of my life I have to live though this. To see what goes on in this world, and to face it. It can be quite a challenge.
The history of women, these rude girls!
Now here's a little History basically of Women's suffrage if you're interested.
I thought since I'm a woman, and all of what my sex has gone though, i thought id support all the women that kept fighting to be seen equally and not have a superior over our heads which is the same fact as that was bad as any facism. its still lowering someone for what they are, when we are all people.
i dont believe in any superiority, of any race, sex or form. We were all made with a soul, there is nothing less than that.
Women's Rights, guarantees of political, social,
and economic equality for women in a society
that traditionally confers more status and
freedom to men. These rights include control of
property, equality of opportunity in education and
employment, suffrage, and sexual freedom. The
women's rights movement is also known as
feminism and women's liberation.
Male dominance was preeminent from the time of
the earliest written historical records, and in most
traditional societies women generally were at a
disadvantage. Their education was limited to
learning domestic skills, and they had no access
to positions of power. Marriage was almost a
necessity as a means of support. A married
woman usually had little recourse in case of ill
treatment or nonsupport. Under Roman law,
which influenced later European and American
law, a wife was the possession of her husband.
The Age of Enlightenment, with its egalitarian
political emphasis, and the Industrial Revolution,
which caused economic and social changes,
provided a favorable climate for the rise of
feminism and other reform movements in the late
18th and the 19th centuries. The transformation
of handicrafts-which women had always done at
home without pay-into machine-powered mass
production meant that lower-class women could
become wage earners in factories. The few other
options for women included work as governesses,
clerks, shop assistants, and servants.
In the United States, abolitionist Lucretia Mott
and feminist Elizabeth Cady Stanton led the first
women's rights convention, held in 1848 at
Seneca Falls, New York. The group demanded
equal rights, including woman suffrage. Colleges
were founded for women, although the right to
admission to male-dominated universities took
longer. Married women's property acts, passed at
various times in the United States, gave women
control over their property. Later, provisions were
made for divorce, alimony, and child support.
Women's right to vote was finally granted in
1920, when the 19th Amendment to the
Constitution of the United States was ratified.
This is my view of The rude girl. How she has blossomed and
ferociously claimed her life.
SO many bands now have women play in the making music, and many other things like careers, rights, etc.. Women have come a very long way. They have not earned, but made others discover that equality is what is right, in all people. These rude girls are still leading the way!
You don't fit into Corporate society, & you're proud of it.
