World’s First Man-Free Music Festival Kicks Off in Sweden because of Muslim sexual assaults

The first-ever “cis man-free” music festival began in Sweden on Friday, following a wave of sexual assault incidents reported at events across the Scandinavian country in 2017.

Held in Sweden’s second-largest city of Gothenburg, the two-day Statement Festival forbids males from attending — with the exception of transgender women born as men.
