Seven dancers from Miss Kitka’s House of Burlesque, aged from their mid-20s to mid-50s, took part in the cabaret-style entertainment, which included striptease and sexually suggestive comedy at a government-sponsored conference dinner at the Old Parliament House in Canberra, Australia.

When striptease dance teacher and performer, Rebecca Gale, took the stage, many of the women in the audience walked out.
