Vancouver AFTER 2010

I live on the outskirts of Vancouver, about an hour away from all the fun unless the you get stuck going into the city on the Port Mann bridge, in which case I am MORE than 2 hours away. In good traffic, I can get to Robson square in 45 minutes. I never realized the true benefits of living in this city until the Olympics. I used to pine away for California, where there is endless sunshine and decent bike riding every day. The Olympics taught me to appreciate the city and Country I live in....more

It wasn't the first tour of its kind (Michigan Womyn's Music Festival, Riot Grrrl's LadyFest, ect), yet, it was the most visible and monetarily successful all-female tour in history. It reached over 1.5 million fans in and raised over $10 million dollars for various charities. Sarah began the tour out of need for female artists to gain more exposure and just plain old R-E-S-P-E-C-T. At the time, it was radio station policy not to play female artists back-to-back.
