THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES
Molly Moylan Brown
Friday, 24 February & Saturday 25 February
Institute for Cultural Diplomacy
The Vagina Monologues is an enduring, humorous, and deeply moving experience for performers and audiences alike, that motivates and supports grassroots educational efforts to change social attitudes towards the treatment of women. Please join us in supporting this very special production of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES. Open to members and non-members alike – we encourage you to bring your partners and friends!
Playwright and activist Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues was first performed in NYC in 1994. On Valentine’s Day in 1998, V-DAY – a global movement to end violence against women and girls – was established, with The Vagina Monologues as its cornerstone. Each February, Ensler shares her vision of such a violence-free world by giving groups around the globe rights to produce her play. This episodic work, based on scores of interviews Ensler conducted with women from a large cross-section of society, addresses women’s sexuality, in particular the social stigma around rape and abuse, by engendering a new and vital conversation about and with women. Now in its 19th year, there have been almost 6000 annual V-DAY events produced worldwide.
All proceeds will benefit TERRE DES FEMMES (TDF), a German non-profit women’s rights organisation committed to ensuring that girls and women can live a free, safe, and self-determined life while holding equal and inalienable rights regarding all aspects of life. For more information, go to TERRE DES FEMMES.
