Student Diary - Malaga trip

My Visit to Malaga

We are not dumb Barbie dolls


This performace took place in the corridor during the mobility in Málaga. The idea was to reflect on  the message dolls convey: "Women are just valuable because of their physical appearance and not because of what they do" associated with images of beautiful and perfect women. The main aim of this activity is to denounce these superficial stereotypes that are internalized by girls since they are little and to show that  other different kinds of dolls that think, create, imagine and make great things must be promoted. That's why we could see amazing women such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Frida Kahlo, Virginia Wolf, Helen Keller and Rosa de Luxemburg into the Barbie boxes. We wanted everyone to be surprised when pressing the button: famous quotations by astounding women.

Twilight: a sexist film

One of the first activities we started with during the mobility in Málaga. It consisted of watching Twilight and stopping it every time we detected some kind of sexism. 
The main character has a crush on the "bad guy" and becomes obsessed with him. Does she need anyone to be "a complete woman"?.  A film full of chichés and stereoptypes that we must break if we want men and women to be equal.
An interesting activity that generated a lot of discussion.
