In support of the Global Effort to End Violence Against Women and Girls, V-Day Ottawa is announcing a special production of the Off-Broadway hit The Vagina Monologues.

V-Day is an activist movement that works to end violence against women and girls. The global movement promotes creative events that raise awareness of  violence inflicted upon women,including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation and human trafficking. V-Day also fundraises for already existing programs that have been fighting for years to help stop violence against women and girls.

The Vagina Monologues has been a huge part of the V-Day movement, with performances put on by communities worldwide. The proceeds from the performances go to local resource centers for women, including rape crisis centers and shelters for women. Last year, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took place, supported and produced by volunteers around the world.

This year, the Ottawa production of The Vagina Monolgues will be performed March 8th and 9th at 8:00 pm at the Bronson Centre on 211 Bronson Ave.

Tickets are still available at thevaginamonologuesottawa-es2002.eventbrite.ca

There will also be a silent auction, a showcase of nonprofit organizations, and a special MadeByMen Bake Sale in Mac Hall before the performance and during the intermission. Proceeds from the auction and the bake sale will go toward providing vital services to the Ottawa community through The Sexual Assault Support Centre of Ottawa (SASC)
