Feminists Get Wisecracks and Giggles

Feminists Get Wisecracks and Giggles

Guerilla theatre, posters and placards publicised International Women's Day in Wellington streets yesterday.

Miss Pat Bartle, organiser of a group of Wellington feminists which set up a display in Cuba Mall, said:

"Some men tried to be smart, and some women giggled."

The theatre side of the display protested at attitudes to menstruation, and exploitation of its sanitary requirements.

"We thought people might be embarrassed, but they laughed along with it." Miss Bartle said.
