She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Discuss “Shrill” by Lindy West

When: Friday, August 5, 5:30 PM
Where: Rachel’s Ginger Beer, 1610 12th Ave
Cost: Free

Seattle Feminist Book Club will be discussing Seattle-based writer, Lindy West’s, amazing new memoir, Shrill. Says Slate in its review, “[the] book is both sharp-toothed and fluid as it rips into period stigma and abortion stigma, sexism and fat-shaming.” In addition, check out the recent This American Life episode (No. 589), “Tell Me I’m Fat,” inspired by the book (and featuring Lindy West).

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.
