She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Seattle Black Feminist Meetup

When: Saturday, February 20th, 2pm-4pm
Where: Tougo Coffee 1410 18th Ave

Seattle Black Feminists will be discussing perspectives on Black feminism and Womanism. Here’s what Acquanda, of SBF, writes:

“I know that many Black women subscribe to one or the other — feminist and womanist, but what is interesting is that (often what I’ve heard) when Black women say they are not feminists they are asked if they are womanists instead — because of the history of mainstream feminism being largely a white woman centered ‘thing,’ and the fact that Alice Walker coined womanism, which has been said to center Black women’s outlook.”

Here is a great intro to the topic, provided by SBF, from Whitney Battle-Baptiste’s book Black Feminist Archaeology, Constructing a Black Feminist Framework.

Also, please donate money or books to the Seattle Black Feminist library!

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.
