What we're about

The Wise Women Speakeasy is a sisterhood of irreverent progressive activists addressing social and political issues through partnerships, creative action, and by embracing our hippie heritage. We meet monthly on Madison's east side to discuss politics, the state of our democracy, and how to take action for positive change.

Speakeasy meetings take place in casual settings: Wise Women's living rooms or east side Madison bars or coffee shops (depending on size of group.) Bring some nibbles to share and your favorite adult beverage!

To the rights that need assistance,
To the future in the distance, Give yourselves."
