Another event landed in my mailbox:
Third Annual MichFest Half-Way Soirée party on March 1st in honor of the six month mark to the famed Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival. All are welcome to join us at Cattyshack, Brooklyn, (249 4th Avenue between President & Carroli St.) at 6:30 pm-3:00 am, pre-party drumming circle 5:30-6:30 pm.
You can read more at Paradigm Shift‘s website.
Addendum: I should have included this when I first posted this promo, and my apologies for not doing so. There is a longstanding controversy regarding MichFest and a practice endorsed by the MichFest organisers of exluding transwomen as not welcome in their advertised “women-only space”. You can read more about it at this Camp Trans website (from 2006 – more up to date links would be appreciated). I particularly like the distinction they make, which is an important one:
We make a distinction between the festival community, an amazing and positive community created by thousands of women, and the handful of organizers who are in control of its discriminatory policies.
This email also introduced me to http://feminism.meetup.com/, where you can
Meet other local women who are interested in the topic of Feminism. Discuss current issues, such as equal rights, politics, and standing up for what you believe in!
