She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

‘All the Single Ladies’ Are Taking Over

When: 7:30PM, Thursday, March 10
Where: Downstairs at Town Hall, 1119 8th Ave.
Cost: $5, buy tickets here

In Seattle, single men outnumber single women by a lot. This statistic is repeated across the country (mostly in urban areas) where single households now outnumber married ones. According to New York Magazine’s Rebecca Traister (Big Girls Don’t Cry) this “independent nation” is largely being driven by the women. ‘All the Single Ladies’ is a historical overview of the positive cultural shifts that have occurred when women have been given the freedom to not marry. What effect will today’s horde of unmarried women have? In conversation with Stephanie Coontz, Director of Research and Public Education for the Council on Contemporary Families, Traister will explore the modern trend of the single woman and why it’s so important for the future of the country.

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.
