She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Candlelight vigil for 23-year-old Delhi student

The death of a 23-year-old med student who was gang-raped and severely beaten on a public bus on December 16th in Delhi has spurred an outpour of protests, vigils and calls for changes to laws dealing with sexual violence everywhere. Locally, there will be a candlelight vigil today (Sunday) near the Bellevue Regional Library. Share a moment of silence near the Gandhi statue outside of the library at 5 p.m. Bring candles and signs and wear something warm. The vigil should last about an hour.

Where: Bellevue Regional Library
1111 110th Avenue Northeast; Bellevue

When: Sunday, December 30th at 5 p.m.

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.
