Eve Ensler created “The Vagina Monologues” after interviewing more than 200 women about their experiences with men, women, sex, violence and life. The first performance launched a global movement called V-Day, which is focused on stopping violence against women and girls.
 
This will be the sixth year that V-Day WSU has performed the benefit
production of “The Vagina Monologues.” With the support of the students and community members V-Day WSU has been able to raise more than $20,000 to help stop violence against women and girls.
