RAUNCH - A Feminist Play Showing in Calgary!

RAUNCH - The Rise of Female Chauvinist Pigs
Breast implant websites, Kinderwhores, Girls Gone Wild: is this the face of “New Feminism”?

In a performance that leaps from Lolitas to MILFs, Aerobic Striptease to labioplasty, Alice Nelson and Jacqueline Russell incorporate clown, puppetry, projection and monologue to examine the new brand of female empowerment: the “Female Chauvinist Pig.”

Inspired by the work of renowned feminist author Ariel Levy, RAUNCH asks the question: by exploiting our sexuality, are women farther ahead… or falling behind?
