This year's Glastonbury Festival will offer a women-only venue, the first of its kind, called 'The Sisterhood'.
A self-proclaimed 'revolutionary clubhouse,' The Sisterhood is described as:
an intersectional, queer, trans and disability-inclusive space open to all people who identify as women.
All staff working in the venue, from performers to security guards, will also be people who identify as women. No bathroom problems here, Ted Cruz!
Organizers explained to NME
The producers of The Sisterhood believe that women only spaces are necessary in a world that is still run by and designed to benefit mainly men. Oppression against women continues in various manifestations around the world today, in different cultural contexts.
The Sisterhood will be tucked away within the Shangri La zone of the festival. In addition to a variety of live music, guests will have the option to attend workshops on topics such as intersectionality, diversity and inclusion.
Now, here comes my favorite feature: There will also be a DIY power tools workshop with carpenter Rhi Jean.
Ladies, isn't this what music festivals have been lacking all these years? While those penis-centric bands are blaring, you just want to learn about power tools! And now you can.
If women-only isn't specific enough for you, there will be a Sunday forum for Black women, called The Love.
There will be daily dance classes, and VIP guests are promised, although none have been named as of this writing.
Still wondering why a women-only venue makes sense at Glastonbury? Here's The Sisterhood, breaking it down for you.
Sisterhood seeks to provide a secret space for women to connect, network, share their stories, have fun and learn the best way to support each other in our global struggle to end oppression against women and all marginalised people, whilst showcasing the best and boldest female talent in the UK and beyond.
