Misogyny: Do women get a bad rap in hip-hop?

Misogyny, as a concept and as a behavior, is a major issue in hip-hop. Women are frequently marginalized and suffer extreme sexist treatment. As I began to examine the pronounced gender bias in the hip-hop community for this week's feature, I interviewed a wide range of ladies to get their views on sexuality, and ended up getting many different points of view.
