V-Day is a global movement to increase awareness and provide support for anti-violence organizations. It generates broader attention to the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation, and sex slavery.
V-Day at VLS will begin with a reception at 6:30 p.m. followed at 7:15 p.m. by an adaptation of Ensler's award-winning play, based on interviews with more than 200 women. For more than a decade, "The Vagina Monologues" has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public and brought a deeper consciousness to the conversation around ending violence against women and girls. While some monologues are playful and hilarious, many seek to heal where a patriarchal society has hurt.
