She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Drawing Strength from Female Moodiness

When: Monday, October 12th at 7:30PM
Where: Town Hall, 1119 Eighth Avenue
Cost: $5, buy tickets here

Hysterical, anxious, depressed, and bitchy are just a handful of the words used to describe female mood swings. Rather than medicating with antidepressants and pharmaceuticals, psychiatrist Julie Holland says the key is to embrace this moodiness is a return to the basics. Moody Bitches outlines the positives and negatives of prescription medications (the pill won’t get you pregnant, but it could attract you to the wrong partner) and shows the way forward. In conversation with Alex McKay, Town Hall board member, she’ll share examples from this moody manifesto, explain why moodiness is a strength–not a weakness, and give concrete steps for calming moods the natural way–through better food, sex, exercise, and even cannabis.

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.
