Ladyfest a three-day celebration of creative feminism
The three-day, multi-band Ladyfest hopes to raise spirits -- and money -- for a cause
It’s approaching the zero hour for Ladyfest, a blowout celebration of DIY rock shows, pot lucks, and creative workshops that comes to the Cambridge YMCA all this weekend. The financial goal of the event is to raise money for the Eastern Massachusetts Abortion (EMA) Fund, a Cambridge-based volunteer group that helps to pay for abortions, but the hopes are to create a lasting network for creative feminists in Boston and beyond.
