Female Hysteria: A Women’s Health and Comedy Affair
Ever wondered what that gyno is actually looking at with her speculum? Or what exactly a doula does? You’ve come to the right place. Female Hysteria will school you on everything from menstruation to mammograms via quirky interactive booths featuring premiere women’s health organizations from around NYC. Take an educational stroll or sit back and sip on snazzy drinks inspired by your fave form of birth control, then cap it all of with some amazing femme comics laying down their best bits on lady bits.
Hosted by the NOW-NYC Activist Alliance, this fun, offbeat event couldn’t come at a more pressing time for women’s health initiatives. With Congress politicizing women’s bodies on a daily basis, now is the time to learn about your body and your rights. Education is power: arm yourself (and have a drink while you’re at it).
When: Tuesday, November 10th, 7-9 PM
Where: Manhattan Theatre Club Studios (311 W 43rd St, 8th Floor)
