She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Young Women Empowered Speak!

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.

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.
