some tips for avoiding scary strangers.
** Try to make more than e-mail contact with your potential ride
or house host.
** Ask your questions, like who are they, and why are they offering
this ride or sleeping place. You can ask indirectly also by paying
attention to their response when you say "Thanks so much for offering
to do this."
** If your staying overnight in a strange house, get the phone
number and address and give it to a friend. Better yet, try to
bring a friend with you.
**** When talking with your potential host/ride, PAY ATTENTION
TO YOUR GUT INSTINCTS. If something feels funny or wierd,
it probably is. We're taught not to listen to our own intution.
But intution can be one of your greatest safety meters.

GENTLEMEN are definitely invited to volunteer and attend the event.
Some bands with guys will play, though we are trying to focus on female
musicians. There will be no all-male bands. Some (probably not all)

What is 'Ladies

There are tons of ladies who have made important contributions to art,
music, literature, politics, science, our lives (moms!), etc. and there's
no way we could honor them all with performance/discussion/exhibit at
ladyfest, so we made a place here to do so. The inspiration section
is open to anyone. Please take time to write something about your entry
that will be meaningful to visitors to the ladyfest site. Please do
not try to email pictures as attachments!! Send me a link to where the
picture is located on the web.
