For every gig or show I have missed out on because I was female.... I got another because I was.
It is harder for women. Especially if we have a family. I especially when I started felt very torn between being home or doing a show. When you start you arent making money and it seems like your family should come first. I had been home for 18 years and time was running out for me to follow my life long dream of doing standup. I was very lucky to have a supportive husband and family.... I never would be a working comic with out them.
