Vagina Monologues in SL



The Vagina Monologues are coming to Second Life!

For almost ten years V-Day has been working to stop violence against women and girls all over the world. V-Day’s model of ‘empowerment philanthropy’ has been a catalyst for activists, college students, anti-violence organizations and vagina warriors to transform their own communities in more than 112 countries worldwide.


The VDay group, under the leadership of ToryLynn Writer, and with assistance from members of SLiterary, Inksters, Act Up, and the Written Word, is producing Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" in Second Life. Created as a strong voice against female victimization and abuse, this Obie Award winning play has received world wide acclaim. It brings together women and girls (and the men who love them) to talk about the most sensitive parts of female anatomy in thoughtful and funny monologues and discussions.

Performances Feb 23 at 2:30PM and 7:00PM, Admission L$100, location TBA
