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!
