She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Natural Novice: A Touring Feminist Solo Performance

Where: Pocket Theater, 8312 Greenwood Ave N.
Cost: $11.25, purchase tickets here

One woman moves from a commune to New York City without shaving…any part of her body. As she struggles to fit into the world around her, she weaves in the stories of several different women she’s interviewed on their adventures in shaving, waxing, and everything (or nothing) in between. Natural Novice is a comedic human study of the implications of a woman not shaving her armpits, but also a feminist critique of the social structures of aesthetic, and how a woman defines herself, no matter what she looks like. Theater critics have described Siobhan O’Loughlin’s award-winning performance as “charming” and “hilarious.” (and hairy) A preview is available here.

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.
