AND
When: October 30, 2:00 pm
Where: Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th St

What sparked decisions by Washington state women in the 19th and 20th centuries to buck societal norms and laws to pursue political leadership roles? What fueled their confidence and abilities to push for change in attitudes and practices associated with women’s roles? In this thought-provoking presentation, Jeanne Kohl-Welles engages with the audience to examine and understand what and who have played parts in the development and influence of women’s leadership roles, historically and in modern times. The conversation will include a parallel examination of male leadership roles and a discussion about what is needed to increase representation of women and women of color in politics today.

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.
