Hunted Women

During a local summer festival I ended up with my friend in a theater show where two young women created a performance about the historic witch hunt. It started out with humor and some funny lines but it gradually moved to a more serious and even painfull show. The witch persecution we know from the past was slowly moved to the present. Even though the cruel witch persecution is a long time ago, there is a lifestyle in which women and girls today are so often are sexually & mentally abused. Gender equality and freedom is still a painful theme. The reality is that women need to live in this society where men are still dominant. The female empowerment movements came from a long way, equality, dignity and mutual respect is key to a better life for women and girls around the globe.
