She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Protest Government Shutdown

When: Wednesday, October 16 at 4:30pm
Where: Federal Building at 2nd & Madison

Join your fellow community members to protest the ongoing government shutdown, which has resulted in furloughs of workers, cuts to services for the poor, and the potential for a budget deal that compounds these problems. This IS a feminist issue. Services for women, children, elders, the disabled, and the unemployed have been shuttered.

Protest organizer, Steve Hoffman of the Freedom Socialist Party, says he wants to keep Congressional Democrats and Republicans from “striking a bargain that would cut services, jobs, Social Security and Medicare — while keeping taxes low for Wall Street and the rich.” He and other protesters will call for increased funding for social services and public education, universal health care and a massive jobs program.

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.
