Women Against Gods?


How do we understand the practice and history of oppression?

In 2019 women still haven’t reached equality. In every religion, country and culture women have been oppressed and undermined for centuries. Men have constantly been shaping religion and society, always placing themselves at the centre of it along the way. How can we understand the history and practice of oppression, thereby abling ourselves to change the future?

We dive into the theoretical framework of oppression and the history of the woman’s body. Several women speak out on the psychological and physical consequences of being undermined. They share their stories on how they resisted to achieve a more equal world.

I contributed to this event by performing the piece White / Black which had it’s premiere at Heidelberg Iranian Theatre Festival 2017. Read more about the performance here.
