The Cairns Cup is the strongest female only chess competition in the United States.  The Tournament is named after the maiden name of Jennie Sinquefield the wife of Rex Sinquefield, who has done so much to make St. Louis the Chess Mecca of this country.  Here is a picture of me and GM Joel Benjamin while attending the event.  The commentators are among the best in the world and I love following the live action!  See: for more information.
