Silliness, over-medication, sexuality, maternity, abortion, family crisis, alcoholism. What themes to approach! What ills to cure! Why not help us help ourselves?

A reflection on the current prejudices on the diverse aspects of women’s lives (Originally a theatre play created in 1981, it toured publicly between 1981 and 1983).
