Reclaim Your Power: Sluts, Witches, Feminists


Join us for the "Reclaim Your Power: Sluts, Witches, Feminists" event to spread awareness about sexual violence and how we can combat it in our community. The words "slut", "witch", and "feminist" are often misunderstood and used to condemn those who know their own power and wish to heal, fight injustice and make choices about their own bodies free from persecution and violence. Like being deemed a witch hundreds of years ago, being presumed a slut today is cause for ostracism, abuse, and death. Archetypes of "witch" and "slut" have been used to police female sexuality and punish women; now, feminists are reclaiming them as positive affirmations.

We invite community members to dress however they feel comfortable and empowered or in something that connects them to their inner slut, witch or feminist.

The goal of this event is to spread awareness about sexual violence and victim blaming, equip our community with strategies to combat sexual violence and to promote healing.

THIS IS A FREE AND FAMILY FRIENDLY EVENT
