The scene was not all superficial, however: a group of women associated with the “Don’t Be Old Be Bold” movement took the opportunity to demonstrate from the show and even invited Maye Musk to participate. Curiously absent from both the stage and the (generally feminist) track were messages surrounding the protest against the death of Mahsa Amini in Iran.
