She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Powerful Voices 2016 Day of the Girl Luncheon

When: Thursday, October 13, 12PM-1PM

The theme of this year’s Powerful Voices luncheon is ‘Empower,’recognizing how important it is for young women to ‘own’ their personal power, independence, ability to speak up and be a key influence in shaping our society. Our world would not be the same without their audacious talent and ideas. At the Day of the Girl Luncheon hundreds of advocates come together to show girls that they can realize their dreams and create a more just world.

Keynote speaker Aretha Basu, is a graduate of Powerful Voices programs. Aretha co-founded of Women of Color for Systemic Change, recently recognized as “Seattle’s Most Influential People of 2015” by Seattle Magazine. She grew up in Seattle and is currently studying at University of Washington, Bothell.

Emcee Hollis Wong-Wear is a poet, performer, songwriter, and community advocate who lives between Seattle and Los Angeles. She is the lead vocalist of the Seattle-based electronic R&B trio The Flavr Blue, and was GRAMMY nominated for Album of the Year for her vocal performance of “White Walls” on The Heist by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.


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.
