From Wikipedia: “‘The Vagina Monologues’ is an episodic play written by Eve Ensler which developed and premiered at HERE Arts Center, Off-Off-Broadway in New York and was followed by an Off-Broadway run in 1996 at Westside Theatre. The play explores consensual and nonconsensual sexual experiences, body image, genital mutilation, direct and indirect encounters with reproduction, sex work, and several other topics through the eyes of women with various ages, races, sexualities, and other differences. Charles Isherwood of The New York Times called the play ‘probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade.’”

From vday.org: “[20] years since Eve Ensler’s play ‘The Vagina Monologues’ shattered taboos, the stakes could not be higher. V-Day is a movement that grew out of the untold stories of women.

‘’The Vagina Monologues’ gave birth to V-Day, a global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities that are subject to gender based violence). With creativity and determination, V-activists around the world tirelessly work to end harassment, rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sex slavery.”
