The Emotional Labor Union
Our voices are power.


The ELU brings people together in real life who prioritize being intentional and carving out time and space to devote to knowing themselves and others better. This is a group that provides love, support and where no question or opinion is off-limits.

The Emotional Labor Union: Beauty

  • The Lemon Collective 3015 Georgia Avenue NW Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)
You are your own standard of beauty.
— Nayyirah Waheed

Beauty rituals are usually some combination of painful, costly and/or time-consuming; all the plucking and extracting and painting! Have you ever stopped in the middle of a beauty routine and thought, "Why do I do this to myself? Who am I trying to please?" Ever thought about what you would do with all that free time if you stopped?

Join the ELU on Monday 11/20 to discuss everything beauty-related and how that aligns with (or juxtaposes) your feminist beliefs.

As always there will be wine, snacks and excellent, thought-provoking conversation with very thoughtful ladies. We welcome everyone who identifies as female. Hope to see you there as we build our community and find common ground!
