She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Discuss “We Should All Be Feminists”

When: Friday, September 9 at 5:30 PM
Where: Optimism Brewing Company, 1158 Broadway

Seattle Feminist Book Club will be discussing We Should All Be Feminists, by Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. A book-length essay, which strives to create a definition of feminism for the 21st century. A few points about the book and Adichie:

• The book, described by many as a “manifesto,” was adapted from a Ted Talk by Adichie by the same name and should be a short read at only 50 pages.

• Part of Adichie’s Ted Talk was sampled in “Flawless” by Beyonce.

• Sweden has distributed a copy of the book to every 16-year-old student in the country.

• Adichie has also written a number of (very) critically acclaimed and award-winning books of fiction, including: Half of A Yellow Sun, Americanah, and The Thing Around Your Neck.

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.
