The era of solidarity and empowerment

1 comment

On Sunday the 7th of January every human rights advocate, both male and female, had a reason to celebrate. History was being made during the Golden Globes Awards ceremony when the first black woman was awarded the Cecile B De Mille Award. That same woman gave a speech announcing the start of a new era; an era when men and women alike work together to achieve a world that is equally safe regardless of one’s gender.

Even though Oprah Winfrey was speaking mostly about sexual abuse, the message she conveyed was much broader: she strengthened the feeling of solidarity with all women that is awake since the #MeToo movement of October 2017. Today, women are noticed more than ever, and so is their vulnerable position.

Love has no labels

The scene opens with a big screen showing different couples showing love and affection towards each other. They are hidden behind a curtain, so the audience can only see their skeletons. After a few seconds, the curtain was raised, revealing a kaleidoscope of genders, colours and ages – because Love has no Labels.
