Staff Pick: V-Day Columbus

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

V-Day is a national program that raises money for anti-violence campaigns through productions of the episodic play "The Vagina Monologues," by Eve Ensler (pictured).

The stories are based on more than 200 interviews Ensler conducted with women about their lady parts - which are given a voice, as the title implies.

The show's goal is to take the taboo out of discussing female sexuality in order to eradicate the hurt waged because of it. The vignettes range from funny to terrifying to poignant.

The $10 tickets are for sale at Wall Street and Wholly Craft. Ninety percent of the proceeds will go to the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization, while the rest will head toward anti-violence efforts that protect Haitian women and children.
