She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

“Young Lakota” Screening

When: Sunday, November 23rd at 5PM
Where: Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave
Cost: FREE; RSVP here

“Young Lakota” documents the political uprising caused when Cecelia Fire Thunder – the first female President of Oglala Lakota- tries to defy South Dakota law that makes abortion a crime by opening a women’s health clinic that provides abortion care on the reservation but open to all local women. This is a story of the ongoing fight for reproductive justice.

After the film there will be a panel discussion with special guest Cecelia Fire Thunder. The panel will discuss the current realities of reproductive justice, violence and human trafficking in our communities. Prior to the screening, there will be a reception with light refreshments at Vermillion Gallery (around the corner from Northwest Film Forum).

The screening is presented by the Na’ah Illahee Fund, Longhouse Media and Cine Qua Non, in co-sponsorship with NARAL Pro-Choice Washington and The Social Justic Fund.

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.
