Rumah Anak Teater, Street Theater: RAGUT
Amnesty International Malaysia's "Women Reclaim the Night" on 9 March 2010 to celebrate International Women's Day 100th anniversary.
RAGUT, a street theater by Rumah Anak Teater held true to the intention of the event:
Women on a daily basis were forced to negotiate their fundamental rights to movement and personal security due to the climate of impunity, discrimination and lack of gender consideration in development issues.
Women continue to find themselves left out and be reminded that the Night is not a time for Women to be on the Street due to the risk of personal safety and violence. We choose to end this circle of Discrimination and the Culture of Fear that women are raised into and threatened by the possibility of violence to walk the streets at Night.
