Chelsea Manning release celebration!

Veterans for Peace, and co-hosts Radical Women and the Freedom Socialist Party, will hold a celebration on the day courageous antiwar whistle-blower and transgender warrior Chelsea Manning is released from prison. While serving in the U.S. Army, Manning provided Wikileaks with classified documents hoping to start a worldwide discussion about U.S. human rights violations and war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since her conviction, she has suffered nearly four years in a male prison while demanding and winning accommodations to her desire to transition as a female. Her 35-year sentence was commuted by President Obama in his last days in office. Veterans for Peace has organized contingents in the last six LGBTQ Pride Parades in Seattle to raise awareness about Chelsea's unjust incarceration.

Toasts to Chelsea's freedom will be given. Refreshments will be served. Everyone welcome!

New Freeway Hall, 5018 Rainier Ave S.
On the #7 busline. Six blocks from the Columbia City light rail station.

Sponsored by Veterans for Peace. Co-hosted by Radical Women & Freedom Socialist Party.

Public Panel
Socialism and Feminism in (and out of) the Workplace

Panel: Kathi Weeks, Charu Charusheela, Jaleh Mansoor, Megan Cornish (Radical Women)

The workplace is a key site where gender is enforced, performed, and created--for example through the decision about what is considered men’s work and what women’s work. It’s also a site that has sparked theoretical battles over the question of which category is more determining in the last instance--class or gender. If, as Kathi Weeks points out, any conception of class as a gender and race-blind category interferes with “the ability to register the contours of even narrowly economic hierarchies,” what model accurately describes the way class and gender interact and intertwine? What’s the best way to struggle against the gender-differentiated wage without mythologizing the work ethic? How can the struggle be expanded beyond the workplace to factor in what Italian feminists in the Wages for Housework movement identified as the unwaged feminine labor that capitalism depends on for its reproduction?

Radical Women and Red May are happy to co-sponsor a discussion of both the durable bonds between Socialism and Feminism and the historic points of conflict between them.

A reception will be held after the panel is over.

New Freeway Hall 5018 Rainier Ave. S., Seattle
