Feminist Friday Flashback

You can go quietly. Or you can Rock for Choice. My fellow organizer, Tania Stewart, was remarking that it had been too long since FMF last held a Rock for Choice concert.

I've got to agree with her. Benefit concerts bring a little pizazz to our issues, and are a great way to raise money for organizations that assist women.

Past concerts featured Sarah McLachlan, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Cyndi Lauper, Liz Phair, and other fabulous musicians. What artists would you like to see if we hosted a concert today?

I vote for the Vagtastic Voyage, starring FMF's very own Caroline Sellars on guitar.

Wellesley College's Students for Reproductive Rights group held a Rock for Choice concert this spring, and I know quite a few student organizations have hosted concert festivals featuring feminist artists.

Ready to Rock for Choice at your campus? Check out our toolkit for how to get started. If you've organized a RfC concert, let us know how it went! As always, send us your regards at

Have a good weekend - peace.babylove!
