She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Miss Representation

The Women’s Funding Alliance will be hosting a screening of Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s documentary, Miss Represenation, which “brings to light how mass media is teaching yet another generation that a woman’s primary value lay in her youth, beauty and sexuality—and not in her capacity as a leader, making it difficult for women to obtain leadership positions and for girls to reach their full potential. Director Jennifer Siebel Newsom takes a look at the media and its message through interviews with Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Gloria Steinem, and more. The film accumulates startling facts and statistics that leave audiences shaken, armed with a new perspective, and asking the question, “What can we do?” (source: WFA website)

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.
