Shake your booty?

Soy Cámara online

Today, after its entry into the mainstream in 2013, twerking is still one of the most notable phenomena of the decade. But ever since its emergence and integration into mass culture, this dance has been the object of debate and controversy. Practised primarily by women using their buttocks, twerking is regarded as sexist by some, whereas others consider it an empowering pro-feminist dance. So what is the truth behind this dance? Should we all start shaking our booty or not?

Script and making: Eleazar Báez
