Faith and International Development - SEVEN - a documentary play
- Saturday, February 9, 2019
- 1:00 PM–2:30 PM
SEVEN is being put on by Emily Wetzel a Calvin '16 theater grad. FIDC has chosen to put on SEVEN to highlight the work of women in their indigenous communities that spoke out about injustices to combat the narrative that the savior complex often portrays. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased in the box office.
A riveting piece of documentary theatre, SEVEN tells the true stories of seven women who bravely fought for the well-being of women, families, and children around the globe: in Russia, protecting women from domestic violence; in Cambodia, rescuing girls from human trafficking; in Guatemala, giving voice to the poor; in Afghanistan, empowering rural women; in Nigeria and Pakistan, fighting for women’s education and rights; and in Northern Ireland, promoting peace and equality.
