A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle
When: Saturday, March 14th at 2PM
Where: Seattle Repertory Theatre
Cost: FREE, but tickets are required
In this intergenerational, all-female program, participants from Young Women Empowered (Y-WE) attend generative workshops and Seattle Rep productions. Teen women learn how to use theatre techniques to tell their stories, which equips them with confidence, resilience and leadership skills.
Through Y-WE Speak, girls learn that their voices matter; their stories matter; the changes that they want to make in the world matter. And the audience that is lucky enough to witness this incredible telling of their stories will come to understand the diverse, wise, and world-changing perspectives of these young women. Y-WE Lead and Speak programs provide an outlet for girls to step into their strength. The audience should question assumptions that they may have about teenage girls and come to realize the incredible power and potential that these young women possess.
Y-WE’s mission is to empower young women (ages 14-18) from diverse backgrounds to step up as leaders in their schools, communities, and beyond. Its youth and mentors represent a myriad of diverse family, religious, political, and educational backgrounds.
