She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Black History Month Film Screening: Every Mother’s Son

When: 6:30PM on Thursday, February 7th
Where: Seattle Public Library, West Seattle Branch, 2306 42nd Ave. S.W.
Free
“Every Mother’s Son” follows three mothers in New York City who became unintentional activists against police brutality. Iris Baez, Kadiatou Diallo, and Doris Busch Boskey each grieved the murder of an unarmed son by NY police. The 60-minute film showcases the mothers — Puerto Rican, West African, and Jewish — as they come together to seek justice. During their quest, cover-ups and lies are discovered and courts prove unhelpful. But this does not stop the women’s courageous fight. Open discussion will follow the film. Come share your thoughts. At Doors open 6pm. Event page: http://www.facebook.com/groups/327365384007083/permalink/418538278223126/#!/events/253005691496706/

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.
