About the V-Day FWN Shows:
Until The Violence Stops features playwright and activist Eve Ensler in a powerful film that documents how The Vagina Monologues grew into an international grassroots movement called V-Day to stop violence against women and girls.
"Hopeful and Inspiring!" – The Associated Press
“Powerful!” - The Seattle Times
“If you are searching for truth, meaning and a lot of heart this is the perfect choice.” - ZAP2IT
A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer: Writings To Stop Violence Against Women and Girls is a groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler and Mollie Doyle.
“In the current era, it takes some brain racking to think of anyone else doing anything quite like Ensler. She’s a countercultural consciousness-raiser, an empowering figure, a truth-teller.”
“Eve Ensler wants to save the world…and don’t even think of getting in her way.”
-New York Times Magazine
What are “The Vagina Monologues”?
Hailed by The New York Times as "funny" and "poignant" and by the Daily News as "intelligent" and "courageous," The Vagina Monologues, which was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom, outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. Ms. Ensler has performed the play to great acclaim throughout the world - from Zagreb to Santa Barbara, from London to Seattle, from Jerusalem to Oklahoma City. Villard Books/Random House first published The Vagina Monologues, which includes a foreword by Gloria Steinem, in February 1998. A special V‑Day edition of the play was released in February 2001.
The Filipina Women's Network is a San Francisco based non-profit professional association for women of Philippine ancestry committed to improving the careers and the status of Filipina women worldwide. FWN convenes programs and activities that enhances public perceptions of Filipina women's capacities to lead and to build the Filipina community's pipeline of qualified leaders, to increase the odds that some Filipina women will rise to the president position in the private and public sectors worldwide.
