Transcript trolled by men, and where women who came to hear me were not comfortable, was just an odious situation to me. It seemed more and more irrelevant to where I should be putting my energies. Secondly, I had an incredible amount of support and encouragement from the women's community. They were coming in droves to hear me in the nightclub, and they would support me when I sang at other places like the women's center. I knew that they would come to hear me outside the nightclub situation, and that they were willing to pay some money. They understood that the only way I was going to be able to survive and continue to make music for women was if there was some money involved. I point that out because there are a lot of women who don't believe that women should pay money to other women. They are not willing to pay a dollar or two dollars to come to a concert, when they're willing to pay twice that much for some dope, or to go to the movies, or whatever. Another large factor was that I had a good amount of privilege and financial security. I had had the privilege to study guitar for a long time and I was able to teach guitar lessons to bring in some extra income. I came from a family— my mother—who was making money, and I knew that if I ever really got into bad trouble, she would see me through the hard spots. Although I found that I didn't need to make use of her money, or fall back on her, because the women's concerts came in great numbers, that certainly gave me the net under the rope to get out there and try." REACTIONS MEG RECEIVES TO HER MUSIC Meg: "Mostly, the reactions are tremendously positive. And the negative ones have been, for the most part, specific comments about certain parts of our performance, or certain songs, in the context of a generally positive response. I've gotten some wonderful letters about just real amazing ways that women feel like their lives have been changed through the concert experience. I've gotten some political criticism, too, about some of the things I say. There's been a great furor over the whole issue of open and closed concerts." 10 Ginny: 'In Austin, the concert that we did v/as for women only. In the workshop after the concert, somebody brought up the fact that Meg has done concerts which men are allowed to attend, because of the women that will come with them, or because sometimes it's legally impossible. I mean, it's always legally impossible, but sometimes it's logistically impossible to have a closed concert. And there were some women in Austin who were real upset about that. We much prefer doing - The Leaping Lesbians - Ginny Berson (Olivia Records) and Alice Shrader (Houston) strike fear into the hearts of over 200 women attending Meg 's Houston concert. women's-only concerts. Sometimes it just isn't possible. And then we came to Houston, and wanted to do a women's- only concert, and found out that it wasn't going to be that way. This time we were the ones at the workshop saying that we should be doing women's-only concerts." WRITTEN ANY GOOD SONGS LATELY? Meg: "Olivia and I are very interested in hearing the music that women are writing. I'm just incredibly picky about the songs that I learn and so I'm not generally encouraging that I would
