She's With Me

A Feminist Survival Guide to Seattle

Feminist Book Club: Discuss “The Round House”

When: Friday, December 16 at 5:30 PM
Where: Columbia City Ale House, 4914 Rainier Ave S

For December, FBC will read The Round House, by Louise Erdrich. This is a coming of age novel about a teenage boy on a Native American reservation whose mother is raped. The novel explores sexual violence, the way it arises, the way it affects families and communities, and the way the world often fails the women who experience it, Native women especially. According to one reviewer, “it’s a powerhouse of a novel that I think is a must read for anyone, but feminists in particular.”

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.
