About The Vagina Monologues (TVM)

In 1994, a play called  The Vagina Monologues , written by playwright and activist Eve Ensler, broke ground, offering to the world a piece of art like nothing it had seen before. Based on dozens of interviews Ensler conducted with women, the play addressed women's sexuality and the social stigma surrounding rape and abuse, creating a new conversation about and with women.  The Vagina Monologues  ran Off-Broadway for five years in New York and then toured the United States. After every performance, Ensler found women waiting to share their own stories of survival, leading her to see that  The Vagina Monologues  could be more than a  moving work of art on violence; she divined that the performances could be a mechanism for moving people to act to end violence.
