Feminine Protection, March 25 at RIME, was a unique femme-focused event consisting of spoken word, story telling and a little hip hop by local performers Ivan Coyote, Tara Hardy, Rachel Flood and, as a last minute surprise, Ndidi Cascade. Feminine Protection is just one of the many events that the sixth annual Sista’Hood Celebration had on its agenda this year. Before the show, Anju caught up with Canadian storyteller Ivan Coyote who talked about the importance of celebrations for women and her involvement in the Sista’Hood festival.
