Equality Question

Postby ilikebeans » Thu Sep 29, 2011 8:21 pm

I saw this event tonight:

Open Jam (designed for females) with Ann Christoffer [at the Knuckle Down Saloon]

A sincere question: Can someone explain to me why this is needed? Is the standard open mic hostile to women?

"Hostile" is probably not the right term. "Less than comfortable" is more apt, I'm guessing.
