Are women in the modern society bringing themselves down and are brought down to revolve around men?

Bartosz Pol, 20

My entry explores young women in the modern western society and their relation to men. My play explores the extent and whether women are bringing themselves down and are brought down to revolve around men again. This play confronts three young women with the past historical female figures and their accomplishments and struggles, in relation to their idea of what their struggle is.

I think it is important to explore that, because in the modern Trump Era world, women are once again under threat of being brought down, of being pushed aside. Women around the world are constantly fighting for their rights. Whereas in the modern western society, I think we all are forgetting the struggles, the triumphs and the actual female figures that have changed the world, and instead of getting inspiration from them to do better in the future on every level of our lives, we push them aside and forget about them.
