This activity is relevant all year round, but was created for the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day.

It deals with the history of the Feminist and women's moments and the discrimination that many women continue to face in today's societies.

FACTS (as of 2010)

Werewolves (also known as Mafia)

This is a game where two teams - the villagers and the werewolves - use teamwork to develop stratagies and outwit each other. The werewolves (who keep their identity secret – and can lie if suspected) try to 'kill' all of the villagers (one each ‘night’), before the villagers can work out who the werewolves are and imprison or 'kill' them (during the ‘daytime’). The game alternates between days and nights until the last person or a team succeeds.  The villagers' aim is to have a villager as the last person standing; the werewolves' aim is that a werewolf survives to the end.

The game works best with 10-20 people plus a narrator who facilitates the game and tells the story. It can be played just sitting in a circle or around a campfire and usually takes about 30 minutes or so.
