Locking as a style is generally underrepresented in the street dance community (Locking is a style of funk dance, which is today also associated with hip hop and based on the concept of locking movements).
In celebration of International Women’s Day , here is a group of female lockers to represent the community, the women, and hopefully inspire more females not only to lock or dance in general, but to be confident in themselves and support each other.
So,Happy International Women’s Day!
International Women’s Day (IWD), originally called International Working Women’s Day, is celebrated on March 8 every year. In different regions the focus of the celebrations ranges from general celebration of respect, appreciation, and love towards women to a celebration for women’s economic, political, and social achievements. Started as a Socialist political event, the holiday blended the culture of many countries, primarily in Europe, especially those in the Soviet Bloc. In some regions, the day lost its political flavor, and became simply an occasion for people to express their love for women in a way somewhat similar to a mixture of Mother’s Dayand Valentine’s Day. In other regions, however, the political and human rights theme designated by the United Nations runs strong, and political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner.
