She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Hobby Lobby Protest

When: Saturday, July 5th at 2:00pm
Where: Hobby Lobby, 10011 Evergreen Way, Everett (meet at Izzy’s Pizza)
Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1470258946546010/

On June 30th, 2014 SCOTUS ruled that on religious grounds, Hobby Lobby and other “closely held” interests were allowed to deny their employees insurance paid birth control. Join others on Saturday to express outrage at this devastating ruling.

This is an exceptional intrusion into women’s health and reproductive rights. One example of how impactful this is is that an IUD costs roughly one month’s salary if you make minimum wage. Women should not be forced to make decisions about their reproductive health based on economic considerations.
It is, of course, worth noting that Viagra is still covered.

Protesters will meet at 1:00 pm at the Izzy’s Pizza in the same parking lot. You are encouraged to bring your own signs.

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.
