LASTESIS, the Chilean feminist performance collective, shows how popular art can entertain while helping transform minds and lives. Their art seeks to hold into account state institutions that perpetuates violence and became widely known in 2019 through the song “A Rapist in Your Path”, which resonated with women’s movements in the whole world and soon became an anthem for women’s rights. As part of the Juana Gamero de Coca Day of Learning on Global Gender and Cultures, LASTESIS will share videos of their performances in Chile and the spontaneous 21st century global feminist movement they have helped spearhead.

The International and Global Studies Steering Committee condemns the egregious acts of violence committed by police against George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless other Black Americans in their homes and on the streets of U.S. cities.
