“Feminist HerStory” Slutwalk SF Fundraiser
Our next fundraiser will be tomorrow at the Center for Sex and Culture from 5pm-7pm. It's a 5 to 10 dollar donation to get in (we will still let you in even if you don't have the funds though) and we hope to raise lots of money to fund another great march. Here is a link to the facebook event page http://www.facebook.com/events/133282593481536/
The focus of this fundraising event is to talk about different aspects and events in women’s history as well as in the everyday lives of women that are ignored in textbooks in regards to feminism and feminist history. We want to give voice to those typically marginalized aspects and groups. This event is looking back at Feminists’ HerStory while looking forward as well.
Historically, the feminist movement has marginalized the voices of lesbians, trans* women, women with disabilities, and women of color. The focus of this event is to shed a light on these voices through presentations and performance.
“Feminist HerStory” will be interpreted in ASL. The Center for Sex and Culture is wheelchair accessible.
Here is a little more info on the Slutwalk movement.

Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29 were arrested for performing on the steps of a Moscow Cathedral a punk prayer asking to "Throw Putin Out."
In cities such as London, Paris, New York, Dublin, and Rio many are protesting the two year sentence these women have to face.
Today at 3pm at the Russian Consulate there will be a protest and another at 6:30 at the Justin Herman Plaza. I urge all of you to go to show solidarity and support for this amazing band. For more information on how to get to these places please visit the official Facebook event page at http://www.facebook.com/events/424888970880304/
