Part of the global activist movement to raise funds and awareness towards violence against all women and girls (cisgender, transgender, and gender non- conforming). Raises funds for local organizations working towards these goals through performances of Eve Ensler’s works, notably The Vagina Monologues.
Our organizing committee and casts are entirely made up of women from diverse backgrounds, though several of our volunteers are cis-men. All genders are encouraged to get involved.
Highlights of Programs/Services Offered:
- We produce performances of The Vagina Monologues every February with proceeds going towards the NL Sexual Assault Crisis and Prevention Centre, The St. John’s Women’s Centre, Planned Parenthood, and the global V-Day organization, among others, depending on need and demand.
- Opportunities to participate as performers, or volunteers.
- We try to provide a fun, understanding environment for people to tell stories, learn about performing for audiences, and a place in which respect for all is of the utmost importance.
