V-Day events set to climax in New Orleans

 

VDAY until the violence stopsVDay events for 2008 will culminate this year in New Orleans.  Eve Ensler calls New Orleans the Vagina of America and she has chosen the New Orleans Arena to host the V-day event of the decade. V to the Tenth will be in New Orleans on April 11 and 12th, 2008. In one of her Vagina Monologues Ensler says about the fertile New Orleans: We brag about her music, the way she moves, we beg to get inside her, but disown her later when she has needs… We (can) change her story and the story of women.

Eve Ensler with Salma HayekThis New Orleans celebration of two performances of the award winning Vagina Monologues will feature Salma Hayek, Oprah Winfrey, Faith Hill, Jane Fonda, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Hudson, Glenn Close, Julia Stiles, Ali Larter, Sally Field, Marisa Tomei, Calpernia Addams, Rosario Dawson, Kerry Washington, and musicians Common, Eve, and Charmaine Neville. See details and get tickets at: http://v10.vday.org/

Ensler has a big picture for vaginas. V-Day is a vision to see a world where women live safely and freely. The monologues speak openly about vagina stories that were collected from women. Ending violence against women is the driving force behind the production. Women don’t talk about their own sexuality; they don’t talk about what pleases them, and when raped, they don’t talk about that either. Most of the time, they think it was their fault that they were attacked and they walk around with the hidden fear and shame of it. «Read the rest of this article»

 


APSU hosts ‘V-Day: Until the Violence Stops’

 

VDAYThe V Monologues are coming. The Vagina Monologues. Vagina. Vagina. The first time I saw the play I kept worrying that someone would see how freaked out I was. I sat stiff as a board in my chair, laughing, but uncomfortably.

The next time I saw the monologues I was at least over the shock of it. I’ve seen them probably seven times, right here in Clarksville. Usually I either love certain monologues or hate them. I figured out that seeing the monologues pushes every button my mother ever had. I’m in my 50’s and my mother never, ever said the V word, or the S word for that matter. I think she would die if she was made to watch the monologues and so too, almost did I. That’s why they are so damned important. «Read the rest of this article»
