V-Day is a global activist movement to stop violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations.
Join us as we celebrate women, raise awareness and envision a world with out violence. This year the V-Day spotlight is on Women in Haiti and the sexual violence that existed prior to the earthquake and has increased since. 10% of proceeds will go to V-Day to support women in Haiti.
The remaining proceeds will go to support the local organization Ayuda. Ayuda is the region's leading provider of multilingual legal and social services for low-income immigrants in the areas of human trafficking, domestic violence and sexual assault.
Buy a ticket or make a donation. Raise the voices of women in Mount Pleasant, in DC and abroad.

V-Day Washington DC, Mount Pleasant 2011 (TVM)
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.
