We recently celebrated the completion of our 200th free mixtape, put together every week by Bitch staff, contributors, and assorted music-lovers. The mixes highlight the work of mostly female and queer-identified artists, mixing big names and small fries. To mark the occassion of our 200th BitchTape, I looked through the collection of feminist mixtapes and pulled out our 12 most popular mixtapes ever.
