To celebrate Women’s History Month, ALL is hosting a Nasty Women Reading to benefit Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Readers will use mythical and historical figures as well as their own selves, mothers, daughters, sisters, and lovers to explore what it means to be identified as a “nasty woman.” As one poet writes, “We can learn from this, nasty women.”

Our featured readers come from Madison, Milwaukee, and Athens, GA. They are Kara Candito, Cindy Carlson, Robin Smith Chapman, Dana Maya, Freesia McKee, Katrina Schaag, and Lindsay Tigue.

The Watershed Reading Series is supported by Dane Arts with additional funds from the Endres Mfg. Company Foundation, The Evjue Foundation, Inc, charitable arm of The Capital Times, the W. Jerome Frautschi Foundation, and the Pleasant T. Rowland Foundation. This event is also sponsored by Union Hair Parlor.

Donations will benefit Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin. Donors can give by going to support.ppwi.org and noting “Nasty Women” in the COMMENT field.

For 100 years nationally, and for 80 years in Wisconsin, Planned Parenthood has been providing health care, education, and advocacy to keep people safe, healthy, and strong.

They provide health care and education to over 60,000 people in Wisconsin through the 22 health centers located across the state. The care is available regardless of ability to pay.
