A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Where: Seattle University, Pigott Building Auditorium (Room 104)

“Once you have marched in Selma, Sister, you can never stay home again.” During the bloody marches of 1965 in Selma, Alabama, a startling new group of leaders joined the battle for civil rights: African American and white Catholic nuns. Nine nuns look back at the events that changed their lives and helped make Selma a turning point for Martin Luther King’s movement and for religious Americans. Seattle University is screening Sisters of Selma and hosting a discussion. This event is free and open to the public.

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.
