She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Social Order: Women Photographers from Iran, India and Afghanistan

Social Order: Women Photographers from Iran, India and Afghanistan features five contemporary women artists whose work explores the role of women in the context of cultural constructs, religion, censorship, and the media. Each of these artists has left an important mark on the world of contemporary photography through their courageous and relevant work.

From Priya Kambli’s visual explorations of the transience and split cultural identity caused by the act of migration, to Annu Palakunnathu Matthew’s play on her individual “otherness,” this exhibition draws powerful parallels and invites us all to reconsider our personal roles as advocates of tolerance and diversity in our own cities.

When: October 26th-December 15th

Where: Photo Center NW, 900 12th Avenue

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.
