The Vagina Monologues, by Eve Ensler, is a play based on interviews with women about their experience of their bodies and of living as a woman.
After a sold-out performance in 2014 and demand from those who saw it and those who missed out, a group of local women are again performing the show in Hobart. All funds raised will go to organisations involved in the V-Day campaign to stop violence against women and girls. Local organisations, A Fairer World and SHE (Support, Help, Empowerment), will receive money raised from the Hobart production.
Unique to this year’s production is that three prominent Tasmanian female politicians will be together on stage. On the 25th of November 2014, Jacquie Petrusma, Lara Giddings and Cassy O’Connor, with the support of their party leaders, came together to focus on eliminating violence against women in Tasmania. Joining the cast of The Vagina Monologues is a significant step towards achieving this goal.
