WASH Event in Virginia: Sex Positivity with Jill McDevitt, PhD
Time: Sunday, October 14, 2012, 2:00 PM
Location: Zikrayet Restaurant & Lounge, 2006 Eisenhower Ave, Alexandria, VA
** Make reservation and see full details and updates at the Washington Area Secular Humanist (WASH) meetup **
Jill McDevitt, PhD, thesexologist.org, wrote "Fighting the Crusade Against Sex", has a reality show, and runs a shop, Feminique. Her book and items from the shop will be on sale. Jill will talk about being sex-positive in a sex-negative world, and will also add special story about her trip to the Dominican Republic to educate young girls on how to protect themselves from rampant sexual exploitation that they experience.
This is a general-interest discussion about sex policy, sex in culture, and womens' issues. This should be relevant as women's issues heat up the election debate and her trip to the Dominican Republic will help to highlight the true, tragic legacy of Columbus in the New World. This will be an all-WASH event and open to the general public, so there should be sure to invite non-humanists, potential new members, and WASH members from outside Alexandria. RSVP today to secure your seat and meetup up with everyone.
The Northern Virginia Chapter will be hosting an all-area event for WASH on Oct 14th at Zikrayet, a Lebanese-run restaurant in Alexandria. This is a short walk from both the Eisenhower (Y) and King Street (B/Y) Metro.
