This March 8th through the 10th, the Women’s Building is excited to celebrate International Women’s Day by welcoming the Vagina Monologues into our space to be performed for its second consecutive year!
As is tradition every year for the Vagina Monologues, the play is performed throughout the country and globe from February through March as a way to spread awareness about ending violence against women.
This year’s San Francisco performance, will feature an amazing cast of fifteen Bay Area women of diverse walks of life who will move you through stories of strength, passion, humor, pleasure, and pain.
Created in 1994 by playwright/activist, Eve Ensler, the Vagina Monologues were performed off-Broadway in New York for five years before touring the country. The VM broke ground, giving voice to women and their experiences of sexuality and sexual abuse.
Every year proceeds from the show are given to local organizations that are working towards ending violence against women. This year’s San Francisco performance proceeds will go to the Women’s Building and the restoration of our MaestraPeace Mural, as well as, San Francisco Women Against Rape (SFWAR), one of our in-house organizations.
Please come out to experience a pioneering play that helped break the silence and gave voice to women’s experience of sexual violence, as well as, sexual pleasure and liberation. In celebration of International Women’s Day, we welcome ALL to join us in honoring the stories, power, and contributions of diverse women during this day and every other!
