Where it all began

Hailed by The New York Times as “funny” and “poignant” and by the Daily News as “intelligent” and “courageous,” Eve Ensler’s, Vagina Monologues, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences.

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 more than twelve years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public. Once a year, in February, March, and April, Eve allows groupsaround the world to produce a performance of the play and use the proceeds for local programs that work to end violence against women and girls.
