Boudicca - The Dinner Party from I'm Inside Ring the Bell!

By Melissa Budasz

Boudicca - The Dinner Party from I'm Inside Ring the Bell!

SAFTA Award for the Visual Arts awarded in 2013 - I invited Boudicca, Iceni Queen to the dinner table. Boudicca led amongst men in a time when women were believed to be equal. Opposing the Roman rule that took her land after the death of her husband, the Iceni tribe were treated like slaves: Boudicca was publicly flogged and her daughters raped. The qualities I pay homage to are not just the determination, courage and intelligence in Boudicca’s revolt leading an army of men, but as a mother trying to protect her daughters and resolutely defying any lesser fate. Her life and story still resonate today because of this.
