She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Intersectionality Discussion

When: Tuesday, September 22nd at 6PM
Where: Ballard Coffee Works, 2060 NW Market St

Intersectionality is a fundamental part of feminism, but often feminists use the term without understanding the history of the term or how we should incorporate intersectionality in our praxis. With this in mind, Feminist Book Club is reading “Mapping the Margins: Intersectionality, Identity Politics and Violence Against Women of Color” by Kimblere Crenshaw. Crenshaw is credited with coining the term intersectionality. You can read the article here.

The other article is Megan Murphy’s article “Millennials co-opting intersectionality: My Feminism is Better Than Yours.” This article discusses how intersectionality is falsely used to silence opinions within feminism. You can find the article here.

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.
