What exactly are "The Vagina Monologues"?
The Vagina Monologues is made up of varying monologues read by a number of different women. Each of the monologues deals with an aspect of the feminine experience, touching on matters such as sex, love, rape, menstruation, female genital mutilation, masturbation, birth, orgasm, the various common names for the vagina, or simply as a physical aspect of the body. A recurring theme throughout the piece is the vagina as a tool offemale empowerment, and the ultimate embodiment of individuality.
Over the past 17years, V-Day activists from more than 140 countries have worked tirelessly on a grassroots level to demand an end to all forms of violence against women and girls. In the face of resistance, and at the intersection of art and activism, they have come together around life-saving safe houses, productions of award-winning playwright Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues and other works curated by V-Day. V-Day organizers have saved lives, raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much-needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.
