Quebec's First Women's-Power Bar

Girlz rule! There is a place in Quebec City where women can come to party, listen to cutting-edge bands and, as club policy, not be hassled. In 1972, the Bernier family decided to convert their towing garage into a bar. Their choice of what sort of club it would become was unusual. Unlike most - many? - all? - bars in French Quebec City, they deliberately made the new bar/brassiere into a woman-friendly venue. Now, of course, it doesn't seem such a big deal, but it was one of the first "safe places" where women could come to a club with the understanding that they would not be subjected to objectionable approaches. Men and women come to the dance floor as equals. In French, of course.
