Hi Sara,

I don't think Rat even questions if a woman should or should not be touring. Rat looks at each person and staffs each tour with people that are qualified,experienced, and personality fit in with each tour. If that person is a female, fine.

I myself have toured for 11-12 years as a monitor engineer. I had to work harder than men too prove myself in the beginning, but I have not had any problems working in a male dominated field recently. As more and more woman start working in the audio field the more acceptable it becomes.

I think you may find it is harder to become a touring monitor engineer than finding local work. It took me many years to obtain the skills needed to be trusted and hired by the bands as their monitor engineer.

Feel Free to email me with any questions you have.
