Take Back the Rite: Celebrating Women's Friendship, Healing the World

September 14-16, 2018

How old were you the first time you were catcalled? According the results of a study by Cornell University, 35% of girls have their first experience of street harassment by the time they are 12. If there are places (and we all have places) where rape culture and toxic masculinity have affected you, then this weekend is an opportunity to tend those places. What you learn about yourself - where you are strong, and where you struggle - will be a gift you can offer. Women need each other as allies and as true friends. We have to practice the art of lifting each other up, having each other's back, and loving each other well. In this way, we transform the world.

Tara Rubinstein is the founder of Red Seeds, a feminist spirituality program for youth and adults.
