I looked at the Eventbrite website where SFW posted their upcoming "Let Women Speak" tour. I have already emailed them and got no reply. For one thing, the location info text is garbled and incomprehensible. Also, the map shows the event to be in Marx Meadow, at least when I compared it to Google Maps of Golden Gate Park. I looked at the site myself, and it is out of any public view. Also, the meadow is surrounded on 3 out of 4 sides by high ground with trees. Maybe I'm being paranoid, but I sense something is wrong.

How is it "okay" if the text for location reads:

Golden Gate Park JF 16NCALKN San Francisco, CA 00000

That's gibberish. Also, look at the where the location marker is within the map, and enlarge the map. Compare it to the same map of Golden Gate Park from Google Maps. Now tell me that's a suitable place for a rally. Read what I wrote again and think about it. Lousy place for a rally, great place for an ambush.

I am not sure that the address is actually complete gibberish. When I enter this into google maps:

Golden Gate Park JF 16NCALKN San Francisco, CA 00000

I get a hit in Golden Gate Park and am able to get directions from where I am to Golden Gate Park. I noted that the zip is 00000 so I googled ‘Why is google showing San Francisco with the zip code 00000’ and I got back a semi related result about issues and/or bad business address info being used by the google geocaching api and creating address results like the above. But if you enter the above into google maps, you will be given directions from wherever you are to the general area but:

When I use google maps for directions with Marx Meadows as the starting point and

Golden Gate Park JF 16NCALKN San Francisco, CA 00000

as the end point, I get a location that looks like it’s on the corner of Cross Drive and Fulton (possibly near a trail or small street named Marx Meadows Drive. Not sure the map looks weird and I’m not from the area).

So definitely the exact location/address within the park needs clarification. But I think the address is just pulling bad data from the api they use and the rally may not necessarily be in the Meadows.

I'll have to check that out, but it's still a strange place for a rally, though better. That's near the park entrance, and it's a trail. I just looked at Google Maps, and could not replicate your results as far as location was concerned. Thank you for trying to clear this up.
