ACCESSIBILITY
* PHYSICAL – wheelchair accessible
* INTERPRETATION – ASL information forthcoming.
* BRAVER SPACE – no drama, but healing trauma space – oppressive behavior will be ‘called in’ and lets practice consent y’all. Let’s practice safety ideas.
* RESPECT GENDERS – this is a space to celebrate women and gender empowerment though all are welcome. So respect people’s gender pronouns and don’t assume people’s gender, race, class or otherwise. At the same time, notice the space you are taking up and make room for those most marginalized
* ALL AGES

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.
