The Occupy Wall Street Movement has lit a spark of potential in the hearts and minds of millions of people who were previously isolated in their struggle against the crushing forces of debt, foreclosures, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, environmental disasters and the endless assaults of corporatization and free market capitalism. We have arrived at a point in time when it is impossible to ignore that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere, and that no form of oppression occurs in a vacuum, but instead is part of a larger interdependent system. As women we recognize the importance of our collective struggles towards liberation, and we believe that a serious movement towards revolutionary change cannot exist without directly challenging the ways in which patriarchy, domestic violence, misogyny, and rape culture continue to be perpetuated.
After writing the Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler helped to found V-Day a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. We are thrilled to be occupying Wall St. and organizing a production of the Vagina Monologues in which Eve Ensler will be performing. Inspired by Eve's work we are committed to telling the stories that help us understand that nothing is separate, for the violence families face when they are evicted from their home, is the violence a woman faces when she is molested or raped, is the violence a mountain faces when it is blown open for coal extraction. It is in the spirit of a unified struggle for liberation against violence that women from Occupy Wall Street present the Vagina Monologues with Eve Ensler.
