In Other Words Feminist Community Center says
Come to In Other Words Feminist Community Center on the first Sunday night of every month for our open mic! Poetry, music, spoken word, and art with a new feminist theme every month.

<3 <3 <3
Theme this month: *Prol Femmes* Working class women and other femme folks are the backbone of the revolution! Let's create space to celebrate each other, talk shit, listen, and learn.

"The struggle for women's liberation cannot be successful in isolation from the stuggle to overthrow the imperialist system itself." - Anuradha Ghandy
