She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

When: Thursday, June 18, 7:30pm
Where: New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave. S.
Cost: $3-$5 door donation; dinner $8.50

Celebrate Pride by viewing a powerful new documentary about the New Jersey 4, the young black lesbians who were criminalized for defending themselves against a violent homophobic attack in New York City in 2006. The women were charged with “gang assault” and attempted murder. Portrayed in the media and by the prosecution as a “lesbian wolf pack”, “killer lesbians”, and gang members, all four were convicted and served prison time.

This award-winning, one hour film follows what happened that night, the media smear campaign, the women’s legal cases, and national defense efforts. It shows how justice was denied due to homophobia, race, gender, and class bias. The inhumanity of the prison system is wrenchingly revealed. An open discussion will follow the film.

Hosted by Radical Women

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.
