On October 12th 2015, Sandra Wong of Ensemble-Karel joined us at the McCord Museum to demonstrate and explain Balinese dancing. In addition to dancing, she also brought and discussed traditional dance clothing and head dresses.
On October 22nd 2015, some WASM members attended a screening of the film Suffragette, a movie portraying working class feminists fighting for equality in the early days of the feminist movement. Although the film focuses on the initial fights for equality, it implies the continued fight that exists to this day.
The above picture was taken with the Suffragette phone app. At fightsnotover.com there’s more information on how to get involved with the current day fight of women for equality.
