A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

The Edge of Heaven is a deeply humanistic, richly layered drama with a multi-ethnic lesbian couple at its center. The 122-minute film follows the stories of six people – four Turks and two Germans – as they deal with divisions of generation and nationality. Unexpected events bring together Ayten, a revolutionary fugitive from Turkey, and Lotte, a German student. When Ayten is arrested for entering Germany illegally and sent to prison in Istanbul, Lotte follows to help fight for her lover’s freedom. Winner of the Best Screenplay award at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival.

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.
