Join us for our first D.C. happy hour on July 18! We’ll be at Republic Restoratives—a small batch, women-owned distillery and craft cocktail bar in the Ivy City neighborhood.

Independence Day may be behind us, but this month, we’re talking freedom:

  • What does freedom mean to you? Is it different in different contexts?

  • When do you feel the most free? At work? In your personal life?

  • If you felt free to do whatever you wanted to do with your life, what would you do? How is it the same or different from how you spend your time now?

  • Do others influence your personal freedom? How, or how not? If so, how can you maintain a personal sense of freedom despite the boundaries and systems we all live within?

Bring your thoughts (and a friend!) and join us for cocktails and conversation. Newcomers welcome. Arrive when you can, and RSVP on Facebook.

HerChesapeake events are designed to provide a safe space to all women. They are open to anyone who supports our vision of feminism and environmentalism, including trans, non-binary, and gender nonconforming individuals.
