About The Event
Many ask what are the Vagina Monologues it is a wonderful play which has been used conjunction with V-Day! A global activist movement to end violence against women and girls*. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.
Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues and A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups within their own communities. Each year, thousands of V-Day benefit events take place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls. This February we are proud to present this campaign at the South of Broadway Theater with cooperation of both Mary Gould Producer and Kristen Kos the Artistic Director of South of Broadway Theater. How this works, all net proceeds are distributed as follows: 90% of proceeds will go to a local grassroots group that is working on ending violence against women and girls. The remaining 10% will go to V-Day program.
