Roxane Gay is an author and cultural critic whose work has garnered international acclaim for its reflective, no-holds-barred exploration of feminism and social criticism. With a deft eye on modern culture, she critiques its ebb and flow with both wit and ferocity.
Bad Feminist, Gay’s 2014 collection of essays exploring modern feminism was called one of the best books of the year by NPR, and Salon declared it “trailblazing.” Her debut novel, An Untamed State (2014), was long listed for the Flaherty-Dunnan First Novel Prize. Her upcoming book Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body is an examination of body image.

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.
