Join Full Spectrum Doulas and Radical Women for film showing and discussion. “Young Lakota” profiles three Native American youth who dove into the controversy that erupted in 2006 when tribal president Cecelia Fire Thunder welcomed creation of a women’s clinic on reservation land in defiance of South Dakota’s ban on virtually all abortions. The 83-minute film explores indigenous women’s stake in reproductive rights and issues of sovereignty, economics and culture.

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.
