"The Vagina Monologues"
On February 14, 16 & 17, 2018, at 8 pm, V-Day Oakland will present a three-night only benefit reading of Eve Enslers award winning play "The Vagina Monologues" at The Humanist Hall as directed by Kin Folkz.

Beneficiaries of this year's event are Bay Area Women Against Rape and the Oakland LGBTQ Center's Spectrum Queer Media's Healing Arts Program.

Over the past two decades, tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged V-Day benefit performances of "The Vagina Monologues"  and other artistic works, campaigns & Risings in over 200 countries and territories. V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.

For its 20th anniversary, V-Day is calling on activists around the world to Rise, Resist and Unite. Welcome to V-Season 2018.

What are "The Vagina Monologues?"

The New York Times called "The Vagina Monologues," probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade." The play - first performed Off-Broadway and in locations around the world by Ms. Ensler - dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement in womens experiences.  VDay grew out of the play which exploded onto the scene in 1998, breaking taboos about womens sexuality and shattering silence around violence done to women and girls.  

The Vagina Monologues will be performed at The Humanist Hall at 390 27th Street, Oakland, CA 94612, on February 14th, 16th & 17th, 2018, at 8 pm.  

About V-Day
Over these past two decades V-Day has had an improbable journey, charting a path that has been unparalleled - tens of thousands of communities and college campuses have staged benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues  and other works and campaigns created by V-Day  in over 200 countries and territories. V-Day activists have raised consciousness, changed laws to protect women and girls, funded rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters (often times these much needed funds kept them from closing), educated their communities, and raised well over $100 million in urgently needed funds for groups doing the essential work of ending violence and serving survivors and their families.  From the Congo, where V-Day supports the City of Joy, a leadership center for survivors of violence where women can heal themselves, to One Billion Rising, the largest mass action to stop violence against women in history, to its work with a broad coalition of groups advocating for an end to workplace violence for women, including nurses, hotel workers, farm workers, restaurant workers and more, V-Day has its pulse on issues women face across the globe.

V-Day Oakland is a local effort comprised entirely of volunteers within the worldwide context of the 20th Anniversary V-Day Campaign.
