The Twin Cities Women’s Expo is created by women, for everyone! While we still call it an “Expo,” it’s really more like a festival. So come discover an event that speaks to every aspect of YOU! Including subjects that range from your personal style to the issues that inspire you to act. Plus, enjoy live music, speakers, shopping, classes, community and more!
In 2019, a new Twin Cities comedy festival announced an all-male lineup for their debut show. In response, we started our own comedy tour. We feature performers from groups that are underpaid in addition to underrepresented. Of course, it’s called the Pay Gap because women still earn 80% of what men do, and lineups are still dominated by white men.
