• “Probably the most important piece of political theatre of the last decade…” – The New York Times

• “Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving… it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a  benediction.” — Variety

The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humour and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For more than twenty years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.

V-Day is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. Further information about V-Day can be found at: www.vday.org

About V-Day
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Ensler¹s award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works.

The V-Day movement has raised over $100 million; educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it; crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns; reopened shelters; and funded over 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, and Iraq.

V-Day has received numerous acknowledgements and awards and is, one of the Top-Rated organizations on both Charity Navigator and Guidestar. V-Day has launched another movement – ONE BILLION RISING, a global campaign that has galvanized over one billion women and men on a global day of action towards ending violence against women and girls.

V-Day’s work is grounded in 4 core beliefs:
• Art has the power to transform thinking and inspire people to act.

• Lasting social and cultural change is spread by ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

• Local women best know what their communities need and can become unstoppable leaders.

• One must look at the intersection of race, class, and gender to understand violence against women.
