Four actresses tell four key episodes in women’s history: suffragettes in England and their struggle for the right to vote in 1913, feminists in France and the right to abortion in 1971, the young Malala in Pakistan and the right to education in 2012, the Femen in Ukraine against dictatorships and religious preachers. And a projection into the future…
A look at the past century and the evolution of women’s rights: the enormous progress as well as moments of regression. Haven’t we said that the health of a democracy can be measured by the way it treats women and homosexuals?
Here is a title that slaps like a flag in the wind, vibrates like a raised fist, and says a lot about the play and its author Christine Delmotte.
RTBF – Dominique Mussche
Christine Delmotte and her sulphurous quartet of actresses are valiant, provocative, generous; committed to the very ends of their hair, and militant to the very tips of their breasts…they are spectacular!
