Description

First held in 2000 in Olympia, Washington, Ladyfest was marketed as "a non-profit, community-based event designed by and for women to showcase, celebrate and encourage the artistic, organizational and political work and talents of women." It featured performances by bands, spoken word artists, authors, visual artists, and included workshops, panels, and dance parties. The concept and energy has since spread to countries such as Sweden, The Netherlands, Scotland, and Austria. It has also been planned in states such as Virginia, Texas, Ohio and Michigan. The first Ladyfest South occurred in 2002 and benefited Project Safe in Athens, Georgia and Refuge House in Jacksonville, Florida. Ladyfest South 2004
