Maybe some of you will remember the short-live Then Again consignment store at 747 Polk Street, between Ellis and Eddy in a block full of mysterious business (Hawaiian massage?). Well, since mid-September it has been the the organizing center and the home of Bay Area Radical Women and the Freedom Socialist Party. For some reason they’ve named it New Valencia Hall, and from outside it looks like an office with a small library.

So if socialist feminism is your thing, that’s the place to go. Also, tonight they’re having a special event including an Italian dinner at 6pm followed by a lecture by feminist author Andrea Bauer. They’ve called it “Socialist Feminism vs. Anarchism”, since she’ll examine the philosophical differences between these two schools of thought and political action at a public forum. In addition to writing extensively on economic and international issues, Bauer is a queer rights activist, pop culture critic and environmentalist.

Dinner will be served at 6:00pm, program starts at 7:30pm. Door and dinner is $10.00, door is $2.00. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to share their views.
