She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Kimberlé Crenshaw at Town Hall

When: Thursday, December 10 at 7pm
Where: Town Hall, 119 8th Ave, 98101
Cost: FREE; register here

Kimberlé Crenshaw is the Black feminist scholar who coined the term ‘intersectionality,’ one of the most influential concepts in cultural studies in the last 25 years. She will be speaking at next week’s Human Rights Day celebration at Town Hall. Human Rights Day puts a spotlight on local organizations and initiatives who are making waves in the community, and places them in context with broader issues happening across America. Crenshaw will speak about the Black Lives Matter movement and its impacts. Crenshaw, whose course offerings focus on civil rights and critical race studies, is a co-founder of The African American Policy Forum think tank which aims to “dismantle structural inequality.”

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.
