Tributes to International Women's Day in Bahiana they were marked by workshops, ballroom dancing, self-defense classes, meditative chi-kung practice and a special chat with the pedagogical advisor Lígia Vilas Boas. This year's theme was "Woman on the move... or not", which addressed the diversity that encompasses “being a woman”. The action took place on March 5th and 6th, on the campuses Brotas and Kabula. Professor Rodrigo Aristides is part of the core of physical activities, sports and leisure at Bahiana and explains that the activities were designed with the objective of working on concepts of equity between genders, based on the paradigm shift in society that historically limited the position of women.
Following this perspective, teacher Jocélia Freire proposed a ballroom dancing activity, in which the concepts of conductor and lead were worked on. As for the activity, the teacher highlights: “regardless of whether they are men or women, the roles can be reversed, since it is the development of the skill that will define the role a person will play”.
