Because You’re Worth It aims to analyze, through theatrical means, women’s status in Romania, as well as the abuse and pressure they are subjected to. Because You’re Worth It emphasizes those abuses related to women’s rights and power of decision regarding their body. The bill provisioning the establishment and organisation of “pregnancy counseling” or the controversial arbitration law, the aim of banning abortions and the way Romanian men perceive the women emancipation concept in 2015 are issues explored in the performance.
