She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Ginny Gilder: Title IX’s Personal Impacts, Lasting Legacy

When: Tuesday, May 5th at 7:30PM
Where: Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave
Cost: $5, buy tickets here

In 1976, current Seattle Storm co-owner Ginny Gilder and her rowing teammates staged the now-famous Title IX naked protest at Yale, in response to unfair treatment by the university. Decades later, their actions–and subsequent response by the Title IX community–continue to shape the playing field for women. Course Correction is Gilder’s inspiring memoir of overcoming the odds as a female athlete, becoming an Olympian, and struggling with personal sexual identity. She’ll appear in conversation with KUOW’s Marcie Sillman (a former rower herself), to share how Title IX impacted her both personally and professionally throughout the past 40 years.

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.
