Julian Boal, Ammar Djenadou, and Léo Poulet introduced me to feminist militant and TO practitioner Muriel Naessens in 2006. 1 A number of these actors have worked with Féminisme-Enjeux, the company that Muriel directed. I have been one of them. From 2008 to 2012, I participated in the company’s activities as an actress and activist.
