AIRDRIE COMMUNITY EVENTS CALENDAR
The Vagina Monologues
March 8 2019 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM
V-Day, is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls started by author, playwright and activist Eve Ensler. The event is to help raise awareness of women’s issues and raise much needed funds for local charity. Recipients of the VDAY Airdrie TVM 2019 funds will be donated to Airdrie and District Victim Assistance Society and Community Links to help recruit and train frontline volunteers, programs, counselling/therapy specific to women who are victims of family violence and/or sexual abuse.
The award-winning play is based on V-Day Founder/playwright Eve Ensler’s interviews with more than 200 women. With humour and grace, the piece celebrates women’s sexuality and strength. Through this play and the liberation of this one word, countless women throughout the world have taken control of their bodies and their lives. For 20 years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public and brought a deeper consciousness to the conversation around ending violence against women and girls.
