HOW YOU KNOW YOU'RE AT A WOMENS CONFERENCE

TED Women took place in Monterey, California this week. Here's how I figured out where I was.
  1. 1.
    At 3pm, you hear the Indigo Girls rehearsing outside your hotel window for the opening night fiesta.
  2. 2.
    Guys move as quickly as possible in the other direction.
  3. 3.
    Jane Fonda screams "fuck the President!" into a microphone.
  4. 4.
    "Festive" fans are handed out.
  5. 5.
    Bartenders can't refill the wine fast enough.
  6. 6.
    So many flowers.
  7. 7.
    Grilled pineapple with cinnamon is a dessert.
  8. 8.

    Hats.
  10. 10.
    Floral headwreaths.
  11. 11.
    Middle aged woman dances under heatlamp to Indigo Girls hit "Galileo."
  12. 12.
    Long stem roses are handed out just because.
  13. 13.
    The Indigo Girls play to a screaming crowd. SCREAMING.
    The only man near me says, "the one on the left looks like Mick Jagger."
  14. 14.
    Jimmy Carter is there.
  15. 15.
    You order a cheese plate and cheesecake from room service. Instead of feeling bad, you feel blessed. 🙏🏼
