Author Ensler has been a victim of physical and sexual abuse, and is now a prominent activist for the cause of violence against women. She composed this play to depict the traumatic effects of physical and sexual assault, as well as the physical injury and psychological damage that results from these experiences.

In 1998, “The Vagina Monologues” became an annual benefit show supporting the global activist movement called “V-day,” to raise awareness of female abuse all over the world. In 2011, V-day opened the “City of Joy,” a new community for female survivors of gender violence in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), with the support of Unicef and the Foundation Panzi.

The theater production has been helping fund V-day activities for more than ten years,  and continues to support and empower women through group therapy activities and educational opportunities.

According to director Hector Correa, “This hilarious and touching play is a vibrant example of the arts’ ability to make a difference in peoples’ lives.” For more details on the dates and locations of the touring schedule, visit their website at cabaretsf.wordpress.com.
