32. Meeting with Betsy Lan
Wednesday August 6, 2008
I got together with Betsy Lan near Taipei Power Station, a very lively neighborhood where university students and young people were hanging out.
Betsy is a theater performer who directed a special version of a play called "The Vagina Monologues" dealing with "comfort women" for V-Day.
"The 'V' in V-Day stands for Valentine, Vagina, and Victory, linking love and respect for women to ending violence against women and girls. Proceeds from the performances go to programs that work to end violence against women."
We exchanged our experiences and politics around the "comfort women" issue in Asia.
