Ovarian Psycos
Sunday, Sept. 24 @ 3:00pm
Smathers Library ( East) Room:100

Meet the Ovarian Psycos, a grassroots group of Chicanas who join together to ride their bicycles through the streets of Eastside Los Angeles, riding to reclaim their neighborhoods and heal themselves while also making the streets safer for women. Founded by single mother/poet MC Xela de la X, the Psycos impart their own brand of feminism through this act of DIY activism. Be sure to join us for a bike ride to the screening of the documentary film. For more details, visit mkefilm.org/events.
