Feminist Gumbooters in Fredericton

The New Brunswick Rebelles - Fredericton, a feminist group of students and young professionals, formed a gumbooting troupe after being inspired by a feminist gumboot performance in Montreal at the Waves of Resistance Conference in October of 2008.

We have chosen gumbooting as an empowering style of dance, especially appropriate for an embrace by feminists, because of its origin in oppressed populations and its powerful history of use as a tool of communication.

Gumboot Fever!
