Drishya Interrupts Injustice

The power went out 5 minutes into the show and it was still the most powerful performance of Gender Shadow to date. Youth from Drishya (see previous Drishya blog posts), sprung into action to stop sexual harassment in the bus scene.

What really brought the debate to full force was the issue of married women who wanted to work. The young men argued against women working while the young women firmly asserted their right.

We invited young women to the stage to argue from the men's perspective and had the young men argue the lady's views. This brought the room to roars, and after the show the lively discussion continued as the youth spilled out of the space.
