She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

At the Intersection of Women’s Health Care and Religion: Medicine, Law and the Media

When: Tuesday, June 17, 5:30-7:00 pm
Where: Belltown Community Center, 415 Bell St
Cost: Free; RSVP to Michelle at MJohnson@LegalVoice.org

Are you curious how the outcome of Hobby Lobby (the Supreme Court contraceptive coverage case) will affect women’s health care? Do you worry about all the takeovers of secular hospitals by religious health care systems? Do you think health care providers’ religious free exercise rights should justify denial of health care? Do you wonder why the perspective of women on these issues sometimes gains traction in the public sphere, and sometimes doesn’t? Panelists will address these questions and help you learn how religious exemptions may obstruct your access to healthcare, question why secular health systems endorse religious directives, and discuss how to frame the issues effectively.

Panelists: Legal Voice Attorney Janet Chung, UW Professor of Communications David Domke, and Dr. Sarah Prager, moderated by Legal Voice Executive Director Lisa M. Stone.

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.
