We are speaking about violence against women and telling the stories to legitimize women’s experiences. In telling the stories, women find their voices and take their power back.

Join UBC V-Day in this 6-day event: ‘The Vagina Monologues’ and ‘A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, and A Prayer’.

THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES

The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humor and grace the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For almost 15 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public. This year marks the 15th anniversary of movement and is marked by One Billion Rising, a global strike to end the violence.

A MEMORY, A MONOLOGUE, A RANT, AND A PRAYER:

A groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle.

This collection is about words. Speaking the unspoken. Speaking the spoken in a new and viable way, speaking the pain, speaking the hunger. Speaking about violence against women not because it is the only issue, but because it is an issue that lives smack in the middle of the world and is still not spoken, not seen, not given weight or significance. So that words crack open numbness and denial and disassociation and distance and deception. Speaking so that we are in community, in conscience, in concern. – Eve Ensler

Diverse voices rise up in this collective roar to break open, expose, and examine the insidiousness of violence at all levels: brutality, neglect, a punch, even a put-down. The volume features such authors and topics as: Edward Albee on S&M; Maya Angelou on women’s work; Michael Cunningham on self-mutilation; Dave Eggers on a Sudanese abduction; Edwidge Danticat on a border crossing; Carol Gilligan on a daughter witnessing her mother being hit; Susan Miller on raising a son as a single mother; Sharon Olds on a bra; Patricia Bosworth on her own physically abusive relationship; Jane Fonda on reclaiming our Mojo; and many more.

On February 13th,15th, and 16th, UBC V-Day are speaking about violence against women and telling the stories to legitimize women’s experiences. In telling the stories, women find their voices and take their power back.
