More about PCB and Camp Sojourner:

ABOUT PUSSY CLAPS BACK:

PUSSY* CLAPS BACK is a pro femme and pro womyn music and arts initiative based in Philadelphia. Through events such as art exhibits and benefit concerts, PCB seeks to raise funding for organizations that support womyn's + pro femme rights, and artistic expression. Pussy Claps Back hopes to become a sustainable platform to showcase local artists and musicians whose work challenges the status quo, with a focus on themes such as politics, reproductive rights, intersectional feminism and queer politics.

*Our projects + gatherings are meant to affirm the whole inclusivity + intersectionality of all womanhood. Individuals of the femme persuasion emerge from the vast + beautiful breadth of past, present, future— across all the shapes, sizes, colors and forms of the human family. We recognize that not all our sisters have pussies — in the physiological sense.

We are intentionally utilizing the word PUSSY — a word which has long-carried a negative connotation that suggests otherness, weakness + been used in subjugation of all people — using it as an all-encompassing PUSHBACK against oppressive generators** of gender-based violence — verbal, physical, emotional, socioeconomic, sexual, politically ideological.

**Our name is a direct response to NOT-MY-PRESIDENT’s on-the-record conversation involving “grabbing women by the pussies” + other statements of nonconsensual sexual advances + assault.

Camp Sojourner:

Girls’ Leadership Camp (GLC) believes in helping girls develop positive self- identities, build strong relationships with adults, and challenge themselves to ultimately become more confident, mature young adults.

Our main program, Camp Sojourner is an affordable, overnight camp for Philadelphia area girls between the ages of 8 and 16. A rustic, sleep-away program offers an environment which promotes team building skills and leadership development. Our program includes traditional camp activities such as swimming, boating, hiking, team-building, and campfires, as well as creative and performing arts such as singing, dancing, drawing, painting, drumming, sewing, theater, and wood-working. GLC also works through the year to develop leadership skills in girls and young women.

GLC was started by a small group of women committed to providing girls with traditional camping experience. GLC's founders include Alisha Berry and Kandace Thomas.
