V-Day – Until the Violence Stops
The Vagina Monologues at the Zagreb Puppet Theater
Scene Travno at 8 PM
Center for Women’s Studies, in cooperation with Center for Women War Victims and Women’s Room, is organizing V-Day, Day against Violence against Women. This year marks a ten-year anniversary of The Vagina Monologues in the region. This performance promotes awareness about violence against women and girls as well as women’s activism against violence against women and girls. Our three organisations have been successfully organizing V-Day in the past years, so we decided to ‘unite forces’ and organize another successful V-Day. Eve Ensler, writer and feminist activist, who received awards for promotion of women’s human rights, author of the renown Vagina Monologues, and founder of the movement against violence against women and girls V-Day will also be joining us for the event. V-Day – global movement against violence against women and girls celebrated last year its tenth anniversary in New Orleans. 30.000 women and men attended this celebratory performance of The Vagina Monologues (www.vday.org). So far, V-Day has raised, through performances of The Vagina Monologues, over $60 million that was used to support activities against violence against women in local communities. This year’s income from tickets is intended for Center’s Fund of Feminist Solidarity.
