She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Global Sexual Violence: Breaking the Cycle

When: 7:00PM, Tuesday, October 13th at 7PM
Where: Great Hall, 1119 Eighth Avenue

Cost: $5, buy tickets here

Sexual slavery, forced marriage, rape as a weapon of war, everyday fear and neglect: there has never been a more important time to address the global pandemic of sexual violence. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) field workers treat sexual violence survivors every day, but those who come forward for care are just the tip of the iceberg. The cycle of violence, shame, and fear continues. Join MSF for a discussion about what has been successful and what more needs to be done. Featured panelists include Maria Pilar Luna Ramirez, OBGYN and Medical Advisor for Women’s Health with MSF; Lourdes Trigueros, MD and psychiatrist and former sexual violence expert for MSF; Rebecca Ullman, Seattle-area midwife; and Aerlyn Pfeil, Portland midwife.

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.
