She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

BOOM! POW! Short Run Discusses Comics, Gender + Movement

When: Thursday, October 10th from 6:30 – 8:30PM
Where: Velocity Dance Center is located at 1621 12th Ave, Suite 100
Cost: FREE, RSVP on Facebook here.

Join Short Run co-founders Kelly Froh and Eroyn Franklin for the panel “BOOM! POW! Comics, Gender + Movement,” part of the Velocity Speakeasy Panel + Conversation series.

This panel talk and community conversation will explore gender stereotypes and the body, from the small press zines you’ll find at our festival through mainstream-comic superheroes, dance performance and “nerdlesque.” Come share your view on how these perceptions of embodiment influence pop culture — or is it the other way around?

Featuring Stellar Panelists:
Charles “Zan” Christensen (Northwest Press)
Jennifer K. Stuller (Ink-Stained Amazon)
Jo Jo Stiletto (Jo Jo Stiletto Events)
Maya Soto (soto style dance)
Kelly Froh + Eroyn Franklin (Short Run small press fest)

An Arts Crush Featured Event. Curated by Melinda Fox (geek/activist/nonprofit strategist).

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.
