5th graders perform historical street theater in Kragerø, Norway. In 2013 we celebrated the 100 year anniversary for the women's vote in Norway. The girl is rolemodelling one of the "match girls"  working under gruesome conditions in a shack of a factory. Almost all got the serious illness of phosfor necrosis.
