Ladyfest provides an opportunity for visitors to discuss and take action on their views on topics such as misogyny in the arts and beauty standards. It allows people to attend shows by female performers and have a good time in a space where they feel comfortable to be themselves. Ladyfest is a breath of fresh air to male dominated corporate sponsored music festivals where only a handful of women are "lucky" enough to perform every year. Ladyfest raises money for crucial local community women's groups. This year the recipients will be Hope's Garden & Rock Camp For Girls.HER-STORY OR CUNT-ROVERSY?
Perhaps you feel that 'being a female performer isn't an issue anymore. Why make it one?' Then it's likely you are someone who has never been subjected to or suffered the indignity of being ignored or patronized based on gender specific prejudices.
Maybe you feel this concept is too extreme and that it completely alienates male culture.This is certainly not the intention of this event. This annual festival is a place where women identified artists (past, present or future) can perform with other women in a safe, friendly, predominantly female, non corporate environment. People of any gender are welcome to attend and support the events.http://twitter.com/#!/ladyfestlondonhttp://www.ladyfestlondon.ca/
