On Friday, May 18, 2018, House of Vans in Brooklyn, NY hosted a Girls Skate Jam from 5-7:30PM where young girls and women were invited to skate around the space. Specific vendors were invited to sell their merchandise while a DJ played songs during the event. Artist Robin Eisenberg, one of the first women to contribute to Thrasher Magazine, sold her art, pins, and patches. After the Skate Jam ended, The Kills performed.
I covered the event for BrooklynVegan and more images, along with photos from the Chicago edition, are now available here.
