She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Reclaiming the American Woman’s Leisure Time

When: 7:30PM, Monday, April 20th
Where: Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave
Cost: $5, buy tickets here

Overscheduling has become the American way of life, and The Washington Post’s Brigid Schulte has figured out how to change that. In Overwhelmed, her insightful account of how much work is too much, she paints a picture far too many can relate to and, according to her, one that disproportionately affects working mothers. She’ll analyze how the average American woman spends their free time–if they have any at all–and call out the global policies that should be adopted to fix the problem (like maternal/paternal leave and universal child care). Not just for moms, her talk will speak to anyone feeling overworked, anyone with children and a partner who works out of the home, and anyone who’s ever wondered how mom had time to do everything.

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.
