Romania's Roma culture seeks stage
There was no word for feminism in Romani, so Mihaela Dragan and her colleagues created one – Giuvlipen – and gave the name to their Roma theatre company. Since 2014, they have staged performances inspired by real events that deal with discrimination, arranged under-age marriages, lack of access to education, mental illness and Roma LGBT issues.

"We advocate for Roma artists to have a voice, because Roma art was pretty marginalised and never valued, always stereotyped. I think this is our role, to make Roma art mainstream and cool, so that people come to our shows and talk about them."
