She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Together We Rise: Exploring Gender Equity, Love, and Collective Liberation

When: Saturday, January 17th, 9:30AM-4:30PM
Where: Capitol Hill (exact location disclosed with ticket purchase)
Cost: sliding scale $45-$95; buy tickets here; contact if the cost is an impediment, but you would still like to attend

Together We Rise is a day-long workshop to address the following:
How do our experiences of gender impact and shape our day-to-day lives? What is possible when we open our hearts to the stories and experiences of others – with curiosity and compassion? What would it feel like to explore spaces where we can relax into being exactly who we are? What systems of power and privilege must be deconstructed in order to create a future where gender equity is the norm?

These questions will be explored through discussion, story-sharing, and group activities – all within a safe and empowering space.

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.
