The Vagina Monologues

A groundbreaking play written by playwright and activist Eve Ensler in 1994, The Vagina Monologues is based on dozens of interviews with women, and addresses women’s sexuality, and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse, creating new conversations about and with women.  The Vagina Monologues ran off-Broadway for years in New York and then toured the United States. After every performance, Ensler found women waiting to share their own stories of survival, leading her to see that The Vagina Monologues could be a more than moving work of art on violence; she divined that the performances could be a mechanism for moving forward to act to end violence.
