V day Osaka 2017 presents a bilingual performance of Eve Ensler’s world-famous ‘The Vagina Monologues’ with subtitles in both Japanese and English. The play is based on V-day founder Ensler’s interviews with over 200 women and explores female strength and sexuality. For more than sixteen years, The Vagina Monologues has given voice to experiences and feelings not previously exposed in public.
The charity performance aims to celebrate the strength of women, while raising awareness of violence against women and children. We will also have a small art exhibition. The proceeds from this event will be donated to Ikuno Gakuen: a non-governmental/non-profit organization that offers various services for survivors of domestic violence or other forms of abuse, including support for foreign residents and members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual,transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community. Ikuno Gakuen has a long history deeply rooted in the local community.
