This coming Tuesday, skip the bad re-runs and check out a happy hour held just for young fems!
Once a month, the American Association of University Women (AAUW) holds happy hours around D.C., with the third one coming up this Tuesday, January 11th at Ris.
From 5 to 7 p.m., local fems take over the bar to have a drink and talk about what’s going on.
The drink specials are cheap, and the door prizes are sweet (shoes, yoga passes, and more!). But best of all, this is a chance for us to take a break from the comment boards, grab a drink and talk live and in-person with like-minded people.
Here’s a brief, no-bullshit intro to the hosts. AAUW is a non-profit group with members all over the country. As one of the oldest women’s rights organizations, AAUW works on social justice problems like fair pay for women, education, and LGBT issues, just to name a few. The group holds these happy hours to start off-line conversations about issues like street harassment or fair paychecks with young fems in the area.
This time, Kathlene Mullens, Founder and CEO of Female Equality Matters, will be there to kick off the conversation. Kathlene created FEM to grant certifications to organizations that have an exceptional number of leadership roles held by women.
Some mislabeled writers will also be there — just one more reason to swing by for a drink!
AAUW promises no panel, no power point, no pressure. Find out more here.
Ris is located at 2275 L St. NW, just north of Washington Circle. Hope we see you there.
