No matter where you turn, women are under attack — in the home, the workplace and the halls of Congress. Full reproductive justice, an end to domestic abuse, stopping racist violence and shutting down the prison industrial complex are just a few of the demands women are championing. Panelists will talk about these ideas and more.

Speakers:

Acquanda Stanford – coordinator of Seattle Black Feminists and graduate student in anthropology whose work and research focuses on breastfeeding among Black and African Americans in the U.S.

Hilary Bowker – prevention educator for a domestic violence agency. She brings a socialist feminist analysis to what is needed to end intimate partner abuse.

Sylvia Sabon – an Alaskan Native and community activist against police violence. She is the aunt of Oscar Perez-Giron who was killed by light rail cops.

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.
