V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes creative events to icrease awareness, raise money, and revitalize the spirit of existing anti- violence organizations. V-Day generates broader attention for the fight to stop violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation (FGM), and sex slavery.
Through V-Day campaigns, local volunteers and college students produce annual benefit performances of The Vagina Monologues, A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer, Any One Of Us: Words From Prison, screenings of V-Day's documentary Until The Violence Stops, and the PBS documentary What I Want My Words To Do To You, Spotlight Teach-Ins
and V-Men workshops, to raise awareness and funds for anti-violence groups
within their own communities. In 2012, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took
place produced by volunteer activists in the U.S. and around the world, educating millions of people about the reality of violence against women and
Bahamas Artist Movement, (BAM), is proud to be a lead participant in the V-Day 2013 Campaign. We have been
granted the rights for a V-Day benefit production of Eve Ensler’s amazing and award-winning play, “The Vagina Monologues” as a fundraiser for The Bahamas Crisis Centre, an organization that works tirelessly to stop violence against women and children.
Playwright and activist Eve Ensler created this play in 1994 after a series of interviews with women addressing sexuality and the extreme disapproval of rape and abuse. It was first performed off-Broadway by Ms. Ensler, where she dives into the mystery, humor, pain, power, wisdom outrage and excitement buried in women’s experiences. Today, the play is a device for people to help end violence around the world. The Bahamas is finally joining the global movement for the first time!

What is Parkinson's Disease?
Parkinson's disease (PD) belongs to a
group of conditions called motor system disorders, which are the result of the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. The four primary symptoms of PD are tremor, or trembling in hands, arms, legs, jaw, and face; rigidity, or stiffness of the limbs and trunk; bradykinesia, or slowness of movement; and postural instability, or impaired balance and coordination. As these symptoms become more pronounced, patients may have difficulty walking, talking, or completing other simple tasks. PD usually affects people over the age of 50. Early symptoms of PD are subtle and occur gradually. In some people the disease progresses more quickly than in others. As the disease progresses, the shaking, or tremor, which affects the majority of PD patients may begin to interfere with daily activities. Other symptoms may include depression and other emotional changes; difficulty in swallowing, chewing, and speaking; urinary problems or constipation; skin problems; and sleep disruptions.
