The Vagina Monologues comes to Vernon in support of V-Day fundraiser
V-Day 2019 is a fundraising event benefiting the Vernon Women's Transition House Society directed by Tanya Laing Gahr. The play promises a funny, touching, challenging and ultimately empowering show featuring a diverse cast of local women—some actors and some activists. Manu audience members laugh, cry and leave with a greater appreciation for powerful women and their stories.
Eve Ensler's play The Vagina Monologues shattered taboos twenty years ago. V-Day is a movement that grew out of the untold stories of women, to believe women have their right to tell their stories and their stories need to be heard.
V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. The event promotes creative events to increase awareness, fundraise 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.
