Bollywood Summer V: dance to empower women in India
|The solidarity event raises funds for the Varanasi NGO.
The festival will take us to India without leaving Madrid. There live millions of women and girls who dream of being free, studying, travelling, having friends and doing simple things like walking or learning to dance. Their situation is not easy. But Indian dance, with its colourful rhythms full of joy, gives them the strength to carry on.
|The Gulabi Gang have organised against violence and discrimination.
It's not easy being a woman in India
However, there are thousands of courageous women who one day said enough is enough and decided to fight against injustice. This is the case of the Gulab GangThe women of saree rosa who have organised against violence and abuse against women. Or that of Anita Narrewho fought for something as simple as having a toilet at home. The festival gives them a voice and Bollywood rhythms convey a message of hope, strength and positivity.
