Cancelled Women

“What would happen if one woman told the truth about her life? The world would split open,” wrote poet Muriel Rukeyser in 1968. Since then, woman after woman has told the truth. Propelled by collective pain and inchoate rage, women found the words, saw the pattern called politics, created theory, and built a movement to liberate women.

But we are now living in a time of vicious backlash against feminism. A growing wave of misogyny from the Left is celebrating prostitution, normalizing sexual sadism, re-stigmatizing lesbians, and gleefully erasing women in language and law. The consequences to anyone who speaks out are swift and severe, from deplatforming to death threats.

Canceled Women will feature an evening of women who have refused to be silenced by the authoritarian Left.

Sponsored solely by Women’s Liberation Front (WoLF).

Why We're Here

This event will bring a truly radical feminist analysis of gender identity to the Pacific Northwest. To make this possible, we need your help. Our costs for this event include:

    * Renting the event space

   * Travel and lodging

    * Honorarium for our presenters

    * Equipment rental and technical support

    * Food and supplies

    * Security fees

This is a grassroots event, launched by people who believe the voices of dissenting women have been excluded from mainstream coverage. Please donate to support us and our ongoing work fighting for women's liberation. Even a dollar helps us get closer to our goal, and any funds in excess of the event costs will support WoLF’s advocacy for the sex-based rights of women and girls.
