Michigan Womyn's Music Festival: 30th Anniversary
There is magic in the air at the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival. Womyn who want to step out of the mainstream for a week and into the best party on the planet can taste that magic - it has kept Michigan alive, radical, controversial, deeply musical and passionately creative for the past 30 years. For tens of thousands of womyn, Michigan triggers what is akin to tribal memory as we create this intergenerational, international female community each August. It's a place where the music is as diverse as the womyn who attend, where mothers and daughters and granddaughters come together and find their common culture as each rising generation adopts the Festival and makes it their own. Whether it's your first time or your 30th, Michigan 2005 will be a magnificent celebration of womyn's culture and community that you won't want to miss.

Don't ever let anyone tell you that there weren't notable, accomplished, and effective women throughout history. They have always been there. Historians have consistently failed to document women's accomplishments — therefore each generation of women have had to reinvent themselves.
