Her experience performing The Vagina Monologues inspired her to create V-Day, a global movement to stop violence against women and girls. Ms. Ensler's performance in The Vagina Monologues can be seen in the HBO original documentary of the play (2002).



The Vagina Monologues has been celebrated as the symbol for women generation and of their desire of speaking publicly about their sexuality. It represent a global movement to stop violence against women and girls, is a catalyst that promotes creative events to increase awareness, raise money and revitalize the spirit of existing anti-violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and sexual slavery.

Many people are drawn to V-Day purely because they want to perform the play, “The Vagina Monologues,” but after being part of a V-Day event they see a change in themselves, their colleagues and their communities – they become an integral part of the V-Day movement because they feel the breath of the other world nearby and they want to be a part of it, globally and locally. The V-Day movement is growing rapidly throughout the world and The Vagina Monologues have already been performed in 80 countries including Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Palestine, Israel and Iraq.
