Women’s safety is a global issue. Inspired by Indian theatre artist Mallika Taneja, whose solo performance Be Careful was presented at Sirenos theatre festival in Vilnius, we invited listeners to a public discussion.

Are we truly living in an age of feminism? How has the art scene changed since the start of the #metoo movement? What’s left to be done?

On March 8, the International Women’s Day, we are sharing the conversation with the podcast listeners.
