20/11/2011 (ONLINE) A VERY INSIGHTFUL DOCUMENTARY. A closer look at the nitty-gritty and pretty side of running the streets as a Gangstress (female gangster). Not only that, but the struggles of being a black female. These women just want what everybody wants... and that's a good life but attaining it is not easy, doing whatever it takes is the most reliable option. Also equality among sexes. They are just tired of being pushed around. It was an educational sitting for me and I appreciated the information I absorbed. It makes me realize the psychological strength of a woman and how strategic women have to be when it comes to money, family and dealing with a world that is unfair to women.
