She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Space(s for Black Women in Grad School)

When: Wednesday, April 15th, 5-7PM
Where: University of Washington, Denny Hall, Room 401
Cost: Free

Seattle Black Feminists have been plotting for a while about building a space for Black women who are in graduate school, and now their plan has come to fruition! Join fellow Black women grad students in the Seattle area to discuss the idea of Black women feeling like ‘impostors’ in the world of academia, and how to push back against this myth. Space(s for Black Women in Graduate School) is an effort to centralize and examine the experiences of Black women grad students and create a space to encourage and support Black women making their way through the Ivory Tower (white and phallic, hello!).

Light snacks and new friends provided.

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.
