College students from Montluçon (Allier) dissect gender inequality with the Lilananda collective

The collective of musicians Lilananda, created in 2004, aims to highlight the people of Montluçon, of all ages and all walks of life. To initiate the second edition of their Mythologies festival, some members are working with residents through cultural and artistic workshops.

This is the case of Marie-Hélène Bannier-Gadré, who worked for two days with a 4th grade class from the Jules Verne college, located in the Bien-assis district. The actress, present in the establishment on Thursday and Friday, led a 4-hour workshop around gender equality issues.

It’s funny, because you can see right away that boys don’t go to girls.

On Thursday, through games, Marie-Hélène first led the students to free their speech and fight their shyness. From the first exercise, she notices the difficulty that boys and girls have to mix.The actress participates in certain games to mingle with the students and their emotions.
After creating cohesion within the group of 19 students, Marie-Hélène Bannier-Gadré continued the work the next day. The result of these two days will be broadcast on May 28, at 2 p.m., at the Parc des Ilets.
