The Vagina Monologues
The Vagina Monologues is an award-winning play based on playwright Eve Ensler's interviews with more than 200 women around the world, from women's shelters in the USA to small villages in Eastern Africa. 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 12 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public. The Monologues have been performed in countless countries and on Broadway by A-list actresses like Glenn Close and Kerry Washington.
Years after creating The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler created international organization V-Day, which raises awareness of gender-based violence around the world. The best part about V-Day is the opportunity they give to other women's NGOs - like Aura Freedom - to host performances of The Vagina Monologues to help bring awareness to their specific projects. Aura Freedom is honoured to be on board with V-Day and we believe in the power of art to shine a light on injustice and open the heart.
