what is not ladylike?
Not Ladylike is a safe community for all cis and trans women, and non-binary folks who are comfortable in a space that centre the experiences of women. Meet like-minded folks and continue pushing the boundaries of what it means to exist in this world. All while supporting and uplifting each other while doing do. Less woo-woo, more woo-hoo.
How do we do that? Well, sometimes that looks like learning at a BYO Book Club, or going for a walk. And sometimes that looks like attending a protest together, organizing with a local climate justice group, or (especially) passing the mic to BIPOC.
You might remember me from some themes as:
- Climate & Social Justice
- Zero Waste & the Circular Economy
- Anti-racism & anti-capitalism
- Accountability & Goal Setting
- Mutual Aid & Resilience
- Food Security
- Connection & Community Building
All of these things are connected. If we want to help change the world, our community, our family, we have to do the work. But we don't have to do it alone. I'm going to mess up sometimes, and I ask for your compassion and accountability in this. And I will do the same for you.
Well behaved women seldom make history.
Not Ladylike lives in Edmonton, AB - amiskwaciwâskahikan - which is the past and present home of Cree, Plains Cree, Tsuu T'ina, Blackfoot, and Metis people.
