    I highly recommend everyone check out the article on MichFest linked to above. The author clears up many misconceptions about fest. Then, if you read the comments, you can begin to see what fest actually means to women who attend, and why so many women are very upset by this loss. Fest is not just a woman-only “music-festival,” though I can see why people who haven’t attended might have this impression.

    On another note, thank you Susan, for posting a link about the book Spinster. I recently heard the Slate XX podcast discuss this book, and I have been hoping it would get more attention in feminist circles.
