We are honoured to have V (formerly Eve Ensler) , Founder, One Billion Rising, award winning playwright and performer, and creator of V Day, launch the India Chapter of OBR this month with us.

Her fascinating and critically acclaimed work has inspired us for years and is highly relevant in this ever-challenging political landscape. Her activism around gender and sexuality, ‘The Vagina Monologues’ and ‘The Apology’ have both stirred up vitally agonising discourses and has provided us immense catharsis as well. This session is also a chance to revive our connections and tend to ourselves holistically with fierce love and care.

As womxn around the world are facing multitudes of challenges ; socio-political, environmental, spiritual and emotional,this year’s theme ‘Rising Gardens’ is a fitting response to the crises of the earth and for the womxn workers’ lives in India impacted by the state capitalist machinery, caste based atrocities, the food and economic situation and the looming question of survival.

V will be addressing the India partners in a conversation with Abha Bhaiya, OBR India Coordinator {& feminist activist and Founder, Jagori Grameen} We hope her insight into narrative building and transmedia resistance can help us plan this year’s campaign effectively.
