The New York Times called The Vagina Monologues, “probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade.” The play – first performed Off-Broadway and in locations around the world by Ms. Ensler – dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement in women’s experiences.
V-Day grew out of the play which exploded onto the scene in 1998, breaking taboos about women’s sexuality and shattering silence around violence done to women and girls.
V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters, educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.
