She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Torch In The Dark: One Woman’s Journey

Hadiyah Joan Carlyle will be reading from her memoir Torch in the Dark: One Woman’s Journey, which recounts her experiences as “one of the first women since World War II to enter the trades as a union welder.” If women now still face hostility and discrimination when entering traditionally male fields, such as  construction and manufacturing, what was it like for a Jewish woman to take that job in the 1970s? (My guess: not much different than today.)

When: June 3rd, 2PM

Where: Elliot Bay Book Company, Capitol Hill, 1521 10th Ave

Cost: FREE

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
