She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Discuss the SCUM Manifesto

When: Thursday, June 23rd at 6PM
Where: Optimism Brewing Company, 1158 Broadway

The Book Discussion:

A biting satire or a call to action? Seattle Feminist Book Club will dive into Valarie Solanas’ controversial work, “The SCUM Manifesto.” There is a lot to be said about Solanas, her work, and her relationship with the feminist movement. Some feminists argue that she was the spark that created second-wave radical feminism while others feminists like Jo Freeman wishes that feminists would forget about her. Here is a link to the SCUM Manifesto- http://kunsthallezurich.ch/sites/default/files/scum_manifesto.pdf

Here is the Wikipedia link to her biography to give some context to Solanas-https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valerie_Solanas

Here is an interview with Breanne Fahs who has recently written a biography of Solanas which gives more details about the impact she had on the feminist movement- http://www.bookslut.com/features/2014_05_020646.php

Abby’s Going Away Party:

Abby, our beloved book club organizer, is departing for grad school soon, so stay after the discussion to give her a warm send-off. Everyone is welcome to attend, even first timers! Location to be announced but it will be a place with lots of food and drinks!

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.
