As part of a global effort to raise awareness and end violence against women and girls, a phenomenal cast and crew of Petalumans will be producing benefit performances of Eve Enslers The Vagina Monologues."
V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of Playwright/Founder Eve Enslers award winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. In 2008, over 4000 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and girls. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $60 million and educated millions about the issue of violence against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational, media and PSA campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, reopened shelters, and funded over 6000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe. V-Day was named one of Worth magazine's "100 Best Charities" in 2001 and Marie Claires Top Ten Charities in 2006. The 'V' in V-Day stands for Victory, Valentine and Vagina.
