**This event is being held in support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month at Portland State University.**
“The war against girls is rooted in centuries-old tradition and sustained by deeply ingrained cultural dynamics which, in combination with government policies, accelerate the elimination of girls. Shot on location in India and China. It asks why this is happening, and why so little is being done to save girls and women.”

The socials are an opportunity for women of color zinesters/artists in Portland to get together and network. It’s also a way to reclaim community in neighborhoods that have been gentrified (Alberta, Mississippi, Williams, etc.)
Joins us if you can!
