She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

An Evening with Alison Bechdel

When: Thursday, October 22nd at 7:30PM
Where: Great Hall, 1119 Eighth Avenue
Cost: $15; buy tickets here

The Bechdel test–which highlights gender inequality in the film industry–started as a joke in MacArthur Genius Alison Bechdel’s self-syndicated Dykes to Watch Out For. She never imagined that it would be picked up by the rest of the country–and the world–as a rallying cry for cinematic equality. Bechdel’s penchant for cultural criticism, insightful comics, and genre-bending works is well known. She’ll share inspirations behind some of her mind-blowing stuff, including her most recent graphic novel Are You My Mother? and her Tony Award-winning broadway hit “Fun Home.” Prepare for an evening of her wit, whimsy, and characteristic criticism.

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.
