She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

A Faceless Movement: Searching for a System that Promotes Empowerment Among All Survivors of Gender Violence

When: Feb 20th from 8:30AM-4PM
Where: Seattle University School of Law Annex
Cost: FREE; RSVP here

The Seattle Journal for Social Justice (SJSJ) in conjunction with the Seattle University College of Nursing, Seattle University School of Counseling, and the Seattle University Gender and Women Studies Program invites you to attend “A Faceless Movement: Searching for a System that Promotes Empowerment Among All Survivors of Gender Violence.”

This symposium will cover topics such as domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking, and seeks to hold an interdisciplinary discussion about Gendered Violence, focusing on the justice system’s response to victims and how it can be improved.

This is a non-traditional symposium. Experts will present along side authors to provide an educational experience for all. There will also be a breakout session at the end of the day that will allow all those in attendance to discuss the topics that were presented throughout the day. For a schedule of the day’s panels go here.

If you have any questions, contact Rachel Bryant at bryantr@seattleu.edu.

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.
