The Vagina Monologues written by Eve Ensler, directed by Bethan Dear, and performed by members of the
Dyfi Valley community.
A V-Day fundraiser, as part of international women's day!!!
Playwright Ensler's The Vagina Monologues debuted in 1996 in New York. Written in response to 200 interviews with women, it went on to become an international phenomenon and is still considered one of the most important and influential piece's of political theatre to date.
Exploring consensual and nonconsensual sexual experiences, body image, genital mutilation, direct and indirect encounters with reproduction, vaginal care, menstrual periods, sex work, and several other topics, through the eyes of women with various ages, races and sexualities, "The Vagina Monologues" began a revolutionary women’s movement. #Vday
The V-Day global activist movement to end violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and those who hold fluid identities) is more active than ever. Activists globally produce art for social change, activating their communities & colleges and raising crucial funds for survivors by supporting rape crisis centres & domestic violence shelters, local programs for transgender youth at risk of sexual violence, incarcerated women, & immigrant women and girls, to name just a few.
