The Coat Hanger Project Film Screening

The Coat Hanger Project is a documentary film about abortion and the current state of the reproductive justice/pro-choice movement. Before the legalization of abortion in 1973 in the United States, thousands of women died from complications resulting from botched illegal abortions. Currently, the Guttmacher Institute estimates that 60,000 Р80,000 women worldwide die annually from unsafe abortions. An additional 5,000,000 women suffer permanent or temporary injury. This film is a grave reminder that safe, convenient, LEGAL access to abortion is a matter of life or death for women.

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.
