The Phunky Bitches was founded by an All-Volunteer team on December 17th, 1997 with several purposes. Founded by and for women, the "PB" Organization exists to facilitate contact between women interested in music at all levels. The Phunky Bitch Community is a wide-reaching social network whose existence serves a multi-faceted purpose of bringing women together and increasing our involvement in the music community; serving this community through information dissemination both online through our web-site www.phunky.com and at shows (via the Anchor Program); educating men about women's issues; adding a large and stable element to the Phish and Jamband community (both online and at shows); and generally providing a support network to our 2000 members.

All profits from the products sold in this store help to fund our Anchor program (we give away free condoms, tampons, earplugs, band-aids, cough drops, eye drops, wet wipes and alot more at concerts to those in need - it's incredible how barely any venue's in this country have tampon machines and also how not being able to find a tampon or band-aid can totally ruin your whole evening! We also provide a safe haven and even safe rides to women in trouble) and our website. The Phunky Bitches is run totally by volunteers.

If you are wondering why we call ourselves the "Phunky Bitches".. here's a little info on that: Names are powerful, and for a brand new women's group in a place where women are normally pretty quiet, a name had even more importance. This name was one of the first suggestions, way back when ;-), but proved controversial enough that we thought it was pretty much out of the question. In the first month of the our existence, however, there was enough nastiness in the cyberworld, that we believe made us rather proud of the attitude we had shown in defending our existence and our mission. In the end, we decided to be the Phunky Bitches.

Why Phunky Bitches? First, it's a double Phish reference, to the song Funky Bitch (a tune by Son Seals which Phish covers - which by the way is a really groovin tune) and also by using the Ph. We all LOVE the music of Phish (and lots of other bands of course) and have built a community of friendships, mentorships, education, awareness, and outreach in the world we all love, the music scene.

But isn't Bitch a negative term? We are trying to reclaim and redefine this term to our liking. It is perhaps a small thing, but choosing this name is activism on a liguistic level. Furthermore, the word "bitch" has been characterized by the following acronym:

Being In Total Control of Herself
