About the film
Until The Violence Stops features playwright and activist Eve Ensler in an uplifting documentary that looks at how The Vagina Monologues grew into V-Day, the international grassroots movement stopping violence against women and girls. It is an inspiring introduction for your friends, casts, and community that highlights benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues during the 2002 V-Season. Until the Violence Stops shows women from Harlem, New York and Ukiah, California to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, the Philippines and Kenya, uniting and courageously revealing their intimate and deeply painful experiences with abuse ranging from rape to female circumcision.
V-Day is a global activist movement to end 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. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.
