I've been a little out of touch with my blog lately--mostly because I was casted as the narrator in UCSD's production of The Vagina Monologues (TMV)2010, its 10th Anniversary! TVM is a movement to educate and motivate viewers on the countless acts of sexual violence towards women nationally and internationally.
Each year 200,000 women are raped in the United States.
(but then again this is not even close to the actual number because 200,000 are only REPORTED incidents)
Hundreds of women are raped and never report their story. The Vagina Monologues is a production written by Eve Ensler and is a collage of interviews done with women all over the world about their experience as a female. In hundreds of interviews over the course of thirteen years, Eve combines the real stories of women and their vagina's.
Also my own involvement in VDAY was helped to inspire others to get involved too--I got the wonderful opportunity to work with the fabulous and famous Jennifer Murphy, founder and CEO of Go Girl Worldwide as she donated her priceless time and raffle prizes to the help out the production.
Go Girl Worldwide is also a movement to inspire, educate, motivate and teach women to "take back their life". Go Girl is just that: getting FEMALES to GO out there and be successful, smart, confident and be the best you can be, despite sexual violence, emotional and physical abuse.
Until the Violence Stops
