She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

GETT: The Trial of Viviane Amsalem

When: Sunday, April 19th-Wednesday, April 22nd
Where: SIFF Uptown Cinema, 511 Queen Anne Avenue N
Cost: $12, buy tickets here

SIFF description: Trapped in a loveless marriage, Viviane Amsalem has been applying for a divorce for three years, but her religiously devout husband Elisha continually refuses. Viviane’s escape seems nearly impossible, but her determination to fight for her freedom propels this procedure out into the public eye and into the open for judgement. GETT is an uncompromising, heart-rending portrait of a woman’s struggle to overcome an unmoving patriarchy and live a life of her own design.

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.
