She Was Wearing…She Was Wearing…

A series of nine especially commissioned monologues to highlight the issue of Amnesty’s Stop Violence Against Women campaign.

Each of these nine short monologues has been inspired by an item of clothing. They have all been specially commissioned by Fishamble to highlight the issues of the campaign and to celebrate the experiences of women worldwide. The performance lasts approximately 50 minutes and is part of Amnesty’s International Women’s Day Festival. Featuring new work by some of Ireland’s best-loved writers being performed by the nation’s finest actors.
